Gaetz "received testing today and expects results soon", added his office. He also stated that he's not showing any symptoms and will remain in self-quarantine for the next 14 days. A tweet from the lawmaker's account says he was demonstrating his concern, but critics have accused him of making light of the situation.
On Monday, Reps. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., Doug Collins, R-Ga., and Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., revealed that they too had interacted with the attendee at the conference, and immediately began self-quarantining themselves.
Collins was with Trump during his Friday visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The Florida Republican's Washington D.C. office will be closed, according to another tweet.
US President Donald Trump has dismissed concerns regarding whether or not he may have been infected with the new coronavirus on Tuesday, saying he felt great and didn't feel any reason to get tested.
"President Trump remains in excellent health, and his physician will continue to closely monitor him".
"Sen. Cruz has not exhibited symptoms of the coronavirus in the last 11 days and is not now experiencing symptoms", his office said.
"The attendee is now under medical care in New Jersey and under quarantine".
A fifth lawmaker - Democratic Rep. Julia Brownley of California - also announced she was exposed to the virus, but did not specify where.
"I'm extremely saddened to learn of the first fatality in our district from coronavirus, a Northwest Floridian residing in Santa Rosa County".
Towards the end of last week, Gaetz noted his office was working with state and federal officials on the problem.
The Trump administration scrambled on Monday to assure Americans it was responding to a growing coronavirus outbreak as stock markets plunged and top health officials urged some people to avoid cruise ships, air travel and big public gatherings.
The American Conservative Union political group on Saturday said the CPAC attendee who tested positive for coronavirus was receiving medical care in New Jersey.
