HAMILTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — State Representative Mike Carter said he’s feeling a little better after being in intensive care with COVID-19.
Rep. Carter released the following statement to News 2:
I did not attend session last week because I was advised I may have been exposed to coronavirus. I would certainly not take the chance of exposing others. A man protects his treasures and I treasure my family, the House and Senate and its great staff. I discovered last week I was positive for the virus and stayed in quarantine. I was asymptomatic in the beginning, but then symptoms appeared and very quickly worsened. I am receiving wonderful care and I greatly appreciate the kindness and well-wishes so many have sent. I humbly request prayers for my sweet wife and family in this difficult time.State Rep. Mike Carter, R-Ootlewah
