LORAIN COUNTY, Ohio (WJW) – State Representative Joe Miller (D-Amherst) announced Friday he tested positive for coronavirus.
Miller says in a Facebook post he was experiencing symptoms similar to a sinus infection.
He says he took a test out of precaution.
Miller says he received positive test results Friday.
“Even though I always wear a mask when required and follow social distancing precautions, I unfortunately contracted coronavirus here in Lorain County or when I was in the legislative session in Columbus,” he said in a statement.
Miller says he will be self-isolating at home, per the advice of doctors.
He says he will “continue to fight for COVID-19 relief funding for our first responders, our healthcare workers, and those less fortunate in our communities.”
Miller was not among attendees at the presidential debate in Cleveland.
