Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 after he spotted without a mask before a hearing on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

Gohmert, who was scheduled to travel to Texas with the President Donald Trump on Wednesday, was said to have tested positive during a pre-screening for the trip, according to Politico.
