MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) — The chair of the Montgomery County Commissioners, Dr. Val Arkoosh, tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. In a statement, Arkoosh, who’s also running for the U.S. Senate, says she is vaccinated and her symptoms are mild.
Wear your masks. Wash your hands. Get vaccinated and boosted. And of course, thank a frontline worker the next time you have an opportunity.
In the meantime, I'll be following CDC’s guidance and isolating at home.
