WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) posted a letter he received from Attending Physician of the United States Congress Dr. Brian Monahan Monday, containing guidance about his COVID-19 status.

A full copy of the letter can be read below, but the penultimate paragraph reads:

“Based upon current CDC guidelines, you have met criteria to end COVID-19 isolation for those with mild to moderate disease. Specifically, it has been greater than 10 days since symptom onset, you have had no fever in absence of fever reducing medication for at least 24 hours, and your other symptoms have improved. The CDC does not recommend repeat SARS-CoV-2 PCR testing if these criteria are met.”
