INDIANAPOLIS — U.S. Sen. Todd Young will return to Washington a week after he self-quarantined after coming into contact with a staff member who tested positive for COVID-19.

The senator's office on Monday said Young has been cleared to return to Washington D.C. and resume Senate business on Tuesday after testing negative for COVID-19 twice.

Young's office announced Nov. 9 that the senator canceled all in-person activities and self-quarantined after meeting with a staff member in Indiana the previous week who had since tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

"I appreciate all the kind messages I've received, and I look forward to returning to Washington to push for more relief for Hoosiers who are hurting as a result of this pandemic," Young said. "I encourage all Hoosiers to remain vigilant and continue to take this virus seriously."
