Does Congresswoman Virginia Foxx Have COVID?


This announcement appeared in the Congressional Record last Thursday:

                          PERSONAL EXPLANATION


                           HON. VIRGINIA FOXX

                           of north carolina

                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, December 3, 2020

  Ms. FOXX of North Carolina. Madam Speaker, due to a test indicating a 
positive result for a COVID-19 infection during the most recent 
district work period, I was unable to travel to the Capitol to vote on 
December 2, 2020.
  Had I been present, I would have voted YEA on Roll Call No. 228.

That's some strange phrasing right there, folks: "due to a test" of whom? "indicated a positive result" for whom? "during the most recent district work period" -- while you were in Watauga County? So you're quarantining, Madam? Because you're infected with the virus?

Foxx missed a vote on December 3rd. There haven't been any votes in the US House since then. Foxx's official website doesn't say a word about this. Neither does her Facebook page, which is where Congresswomen sometimes like to make these kinds of announcements.

Don't the constituents in the 5th District deserve some explanation here?

"Virginia Foxx", and all references, are in all caps. Yet, "North Carolina" and "House of Representatives" are not capitalized as proper nouns. Did Melissa Carone proofread this official statement?
