Grassley finishes COVID-19 quarantine

WASHINGTON D.C. -- Iowa Republican U-S Senator Charles Grassley is out of quarantine.

In a news release, Grassley says he returned to his Washington office Monday after completing a quarantine due to testing positive for COVID-19.

Grassley says he didn't show symptoms of the virus throughout his quarantine and was cleared to return to the office by his doctors.

"This disease affects people differently. I did not experience symptoms, but more than a thousand Americans are dying every day and many more are hospitalized. That means we all have to do our part to help protect our friends, family and fellow Americans. I will continue to wear a mask and practice social distancing" Grassley says.

Grassley's urging Congress to pass coronavirus relief legislation he says will help families, businesses and communities get through the pandemic.

The 87-year-old Senator's quarantine forced him to miss his first roll-call vote in more than 27 years.

Grassley's office says his streak ended at 8.927 consecutive votes, going back to 1993.
