A staff member in Speaker Welch’s office tested positive for the coronavirus. The staff member tested yesterday as part of the required protocols to return to in-person work in the Capitol. Contact tracing was performed, and those who were in contact with the staff member are now quarantining, pending negative tests. The Speaker was not in contact with the staff member and continues to stress the vital importance of public health safety measures as the House of Representatives gets back to work for the people of Illinois. Thanks to the implementation of the U of I Shield testing, the Speaker’s Office was able to catch the positive result prior to the start of session today and it remains a requirement for all staff to be tested regularly.
