Many people believe that once they have had COVID-19 they can’t get it again. However, officials with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it is unclear how much, if any, protection there is for those who’ve recovered from the virus.
According to the CDC’s website, “confirmed and suspected cases of reinfection have been reported, but remain rare.”
Giuliani was in town with other Trump attorneys who brought a parade of witnesses who expressed doubts about the integrity of the election in Georgia but provided no proof of voter fraud.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has repeatedly said there is no credible evidence of widespread voter fraud in Georgia. Trump lost the election to former Vice President Joe Biden both in Georgia and nationally, but he has made unsubstantiated claims of fraud ever since the outcome became clear.
Giuliani participated in similar hearings in Arizona and Michigan. Arizona legislative officials announced Sunday that the Legislature would close for a week “out of an abundance of caution,” according to The Arizona Republic.
Senate staff members who came in contact with Giuliani have been asked to get COVID-19 tests and work remotely until they receive negative test results, said Steve Tippins, Miller’s chief of staff.
Senators were free to make their own decisions about how to react to the news of Giuliani’s diagnosis with COVID-19 three days after his visit to Atlanta.
State Sen. Jen Jordan, an Atlanta Democrat who participated in the hearing with Giuliani, decided to quarantine after learning of his diagnosis. She said she plans to get a test Tuesday.
Others, however, attended the legislative event hosted by the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government.
