INDIANAPOLIS — U.S. Sen. Todd Young will self-quarantine after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

In a statement released on Monday, Young said he has canceled in-person activities and will self-quarantine after meeting with a staff member last week in Indiana who has since tested positive for COVID-19.

All in-person activities are being halted until further notice, Young's office said in the statement.

"Out of an abundance of caution, I have decided to self-quarantine to protect the health and safety of my fellow Hoosiers, Senate colleagues, and staff," Young said. "I am feeling healthy, working from home, and not experiencing any symptoms, but I will be tested this week and halt all in-person activities until further notice."
