Michigan U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga says he tested positive for COVID-19 after a rapid test prior to a rally hosted by Vice President Mike Pence in West Michigan on Wednesday.

Rep. Huizenga, a Republican who represents Michigan’s 2nd Congressional District, tweeted the news on Wednesday afternoon.

Rep. Huizenga said he is self-isolating until he has further confirmation on results.

Pence held a campaign event near Grand Rapids on Wednesday, a few days before an event in Muskegon Saturday where President Donald Trump will speak.
