This is what we know so far…
House Representative Louie Gohmert, 66, has recently received confirmation that he is positive for coronavirus. The news was released before his expected flight to Texas with President Trump.
Gohmert is now the sixth person in the House to test positive for coronavirus. Attorney General William Barr will also be tested after his contact with Gohmert.
The two were shown “exchang[ing] a comment or two” outside of the House meeting room.
ACTUALLY… here is a video of AG Barr and Gohmert.
While Barr arrived with a mask, it was off when he walked into the hearing room, so both men were not wearing masks at this time. pic.twitter.com/xm6wuq6QvW

Gohmert has stated that if he were to contract the virus, he would be wearing a mask. He stated on a previous CNN interview, “I don’t have the coronavirus, turns out as of yesterday I’ve never had it. But if I get it, you’ll never see me without a mask.”
