Congressman Don Young announced today he has tested positive for COVID-19. He is working from his home in Alaska and says he is feeling strong and following protocols.
Young’s wife Ann is a nurse.
Several people associated with the campaign have also tested positive, Must Read Alaska has learned. All are doing well and are working from their homes.
Young, who is 87 years old, is in generally good health, although he has had some bouts of sciatica, a pain in the lower back. He just won his 25th term in Congress and has served for Alaska since 1973.
In past years, he has stayed healthy throughout his campaigns, and sometimes has gotten a head cold right after the campaign ends.
