“He has coronavirus and has been in the hospital for pneumonia and low oxygen,” Klobuchar said in a statement. “He took a good turn, was just released and is now recovering at home.”
Klobuchar expressed gratitude to those who had sent well wishes, to “those who cared for him and for all front line health care workers,” she added.
Klobuchar shared news that her husband had tested positive for the virus on Monday, adding that he was admitted to a Virginia hospital “and is on oxygen, but not a ventilator.”
Klobuchar said that she and her husband have not been in the same place over the last two weeks and because “I am outside the 14-day period for getting sick, my doctor has advised me not to get a test.”
“As everyone is aware, there are test shortages for people who need them everywhere and I don’t qualify to get one under any standard,” she wrote.
