COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson is the latest member of South Carolina’s congressional delegation to test positive for the coronavirus.

Wilson said he was experiencing no symptoms and would quarantine through the Christmas holiday.

Wilson delivered a speech on the floor of the U.S. House earlier Wednesday.

He is 73 years old and was recently elected to a 10th term in the U.S. House.
