MORRIS – State Rep. David Allen Welter, R-Morris, issued the following statement Oct. 15 after testing positive for COVID-19:

“I want to let my constituents know that I tested positive for COVID-19 last night. I am experiencing mild symptoms and visited Morris Hospital to be checked out. I have already begun following up with people I have been in contact with in recent days to notify them of my positive test. I take COVID-19 seriously, as we all should, and will quarantine for 14 days as recommended by the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]. I would like to express my thanks to the Morris Hospital staff and all our front-line health care workers for their exceptional care during this pandemic. They are truly our local heroes.”

Welter represents the 75th District, which includes portions of Grundy, Kendall, La Salle and Will counties.
