Pressley tested negative for COVID-19; just flu, she says

US Rep. Ayanna Pressley has tested negative for the coronavirus-caused COVID-19, her office announced last Friday. Pressley’s office had said on March 25 that the Boston congresswoman “sought professional medical treatment out of an abundance of caution” after experiencing flu-like symptoms.

“I am relieved to report that I have tested negative for COVID-19. I am, however still recovering from the flu, but feeling much better and continuing to work remotely with my team on COVID-19 response,” Pressley said in a statement.
