"Since learning of their potential exposure, Greg, Susan, and Kristen have adhered to recommended guidelines," Hall added. "Out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of others, they will self-quarantine, be tested for COVID-19, and suspend in-person campaign events pending test results."
