WASHINGTON. DC - Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley says he's feeling well after testing positive for COVID-19 last Wednesday.
Grassley tweeted Monday that he's keeping up on reading and work from home, and plans to be back in the Senate next week after the holiday weekend.
He's the second oldest member of the Senate at 87, just a few months younger than Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, who is also 87.
Grassley is also president pro tem of the Senate, which makes him third in the line of succession for president.
He first went into quarantine week ago after being exposed to someone who had tested positive for COVID-19.
Grassley missed his first vote in the Senate in 27 years last week, according to his campaign.
Not since 1993, when he was in Iowa helping with historic flooding, had he missed a vote. The campaign says it’s the longest street in Senate history and during those 27 years, Grassley has logged 8,927 votes.
