Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) announced Saturday that he had checked himself into a local hospital hours after he tested positive for COVID-19, describing it as a “precautionary measure” due to a “history of asthma.”
“In consultation with my doctors, I checked myself into Morristown Medical Center this afternoon,” the former governor tweeted early in the evening Saturday. “While I am feeling good and only have mild symptoms, due to my history of asthma we decided this is an important precautionary measure.”
Christie added in a follow-up tweet, “I am thankful for our hardworking medical professionals and look forward to coming home soon.” Christie is one of the latest officials in Trump’s orbit to test positive for the infection after news broke early Friday that President Trump and first lady Melania Trump had contracted the virus.
Christie was at the White House last Saturday the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. The ex-governor was spotted interacting closely with others at the event without a mask. Christie was also with the president last week to assist with his preparation for the first presidential debate. That group also included top Trump aide Hope Hicks and former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, both of whom have tested positive for the virus within the past couple days.

Getting admitted to a hospital as a precautionary measure is not easy. I’ve read stories from numerous people who had nasty Covid symptoms, showed up at the emergency room, and were sent home with instructions to take over the counter meds. Could not even get tested. There are two standards of care in this country. First rate top tier for the ruling class, and bargain basement take your chances for everybody else.
