Cutler’s office issued a statement on Thursday morning announcing that he tested positive for coronavirus and is experiencing mild symptoms.
On Monday, Cutler announced that he was quarantining after coming in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
Cutler said that he will continue to work from home and his exposure did not occur while he was inside the Capitol.
“My exposure and positive test do not fall within time frames of being inside the Capitol, so there is no impact on colleagues, fellow members or staff in Harrisburg or my district office,” Cutler said in a statement. “I want to thank everyone who has reached out to me in recent days and appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers.”
Cutler added that his offices in Harrisburg and Quarryville will remain open as he continues to quarantine.
