Athens state Senators Bill Cowsert and Frank Ginn continue to self-quarantine after possible exposure to coronavirus: the Republican lawmakers took part in last Monday’s special session of the House and Senate. After the session came word that Alpharetta Senator Brandon Beach had tested positive for COVID 19.

Sen. Nikema Williams found out she tested positive Sunday night, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Greg Bluestein.
She was the second Georgia state senator to find out she has the deadly virus Sunday.
Sen. Bruce Thompson was released from the hospital Saturday after having symptoms similar to those found in COVID-19. Thompson confirmed to Bluestein earlier Sunday that he tested positive.
Sen. Kay Kirkpatrick, who is a member of Gov. Brian Kemp’s coronavirus task force, announced Friday that she’d tested positive for the virus and has been on self-quarantine since earlier this month.
The announcement came two days after Sen. Brandon Beach revealed he also tested positive for the virus.
Georgia lawmakers were urged Wednesday to self-isolate themselves after Beach revealed his diagnosis.
Several other senators have said they believe they may also be infected.
