Indiana House Speaker Todd Huston tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, December  9.

According to his spokesperson, Huston has only experienced mild symptoms and he is quarantining at home per the CDC guidelines.

Huston has not been in recent contact with legislative members or staff, nor has he been at the Statehouse within the last week.

“The pandemic has impacted Hoosiers and their families across our state, especially in the recent surge of cases,” Huston said.   “Unfortunately, I have tested positive for COVID-19 as well. I will continue quarantining at home and taking all necessary precautions. I look forward to returning to work when it’s safe to do so.”
