WASHINGTON, D.C. – Champaign County Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, who travelled to Tuesday’s presidential debate in Cleveland with President Donald Trump aboard Air Force One, says he will get a coronavirus test after Trump’s Thursday diagnosis with the potentially fatal virus.

“We’ll get one, probably as soon as I get done with this interview,” Jordan said in an interview on Fox and Friends. He added that he’s praying for Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and Trump aide Hope Hicks, who all tested positive for the virus.

Jordan said he wasn’t worried that he’d caught the virus during his time with Trump, because he was only with him for “a brief, brief amount of time.” He said he didn’t return to Washington on Air Force One with Trump after the debate, so he could do media appearances in Ohio.

“I feel great,” said Jordan. “I had a great workout yesterday. I feel fine.”

Just to be cautious, Jordan said he will not personally attend a House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis that’s scheduled to occur this morning, and will do so virtually.

“I think that’s probably the safest course of action,” said Jordan.
