Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Rand Paul defends decision to not self-quarantine while awaiting coronavirus test”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sen. Rand Paul in an op-ed on Tuesday urged folks to stop “finger-wagging” at him for not self quarantining while awaiting his coronavirus test results.

“I did not quarantine while awaiting a coronavirus test because I did not meet the criteria for quarantine,” the Kentucky Republican wrote in USA Today. “In fact, I did not meet the current criteria for even being tested, much less quarantined.”

“Instead of hounding people who got tested and then quarantined themselves, perhaps we need to broaden the testing and quit the finger-wagging.”

Paul, who confirmed he tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, was blasted by his colleagues for spending a week interacting with them and aides, as well as using Capitol Hill facilities while awaiting his results.

Republican Sens. Mitt Romney and Mike Lee, both of Utah, went into self-quarantine after being in proximity to Paul.
