Alabama Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth announced Wednesday afternoon that he’s tested positive for coronavirus.
In his announcement on Twitter, Ainsworth said he was tested after being notified that a member of his Sunday school church group tested positive.
“Because I follow social distancing rules and wear a mask both in church and in my daily interactions, the positive result shows that even those that are the most cautious can be at risk,” he said in a statement.
Ainsworth said he is currently not experiencing any symptoms. He said he will quarantine and seek follow-up tests before resuming public activities.
