False Alarm: Follow-Up COVID Tests Come Back Negative for Group of Maryland Senators

February 24th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Follow-up tests for the coronavirus have turned out negative after several Maryland state senators missed a day of session as a precaution. Most were back on the Senate floor Wednesday morning.

Six members were absent a day earlier after several rapid virus tests came back positive. The rapid tests are used to screen for the virus among lawmakers and staff as they gather in person at the Maryland State House.

The General Assembly is nearing the half-way point of its annual 90-day session.
