Nebraska Congressman Fortenberry diagnosed with COVID-19
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Nebraska Rep. Jeff Fortenberry’s office said Tuesday that the congressman has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Fortenberry, who represents the state’s first district in the U.S. House of Representatives, said in his statement Tuesday that he will vote this week by proxy while recuperating and working from home.
“Though I have been vaccinated and took every precaution to avoid infection, I have contracted a moderate case of COVID-19. Per House protocol, I will be recuperating and working from home, and will vote by proxy. As always, my excellent team is ready and available to serve the needs of all Nebraskans.”
In what the congressman called “an odd coincidence,” he surveyed his constituents about the inconvenience of COVID-19 last week.
