Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is refusing to be tested for COVID-19, despite the fact she was exposed to the deadly virus via a lawmaker who has “been diagnosed with presumed coronavirus infection.”
Pelosi confirmed during a Tuesday interview with MSNBC that she will not take the test.
“In terms of my situation, I kept my distance,” Pelosi insisted.
“I said to them we all have to be six feet apart and I kept my distance from all the members.”
Rep. Nydia Velazquez, who attended a signing ceremony with the House Speaker and others on Friday, said on Monday she has been diagnosed with “presumed” coronavirus infection.
