State Senator Tommy Tomlinson has tested positive for COVID-19.
The Republican representing Bensalem says he started experiencing flu-like symptoms over the weekend.
After talking with his doctor, Tomlinson got tested for the virus. He received the positive result Tuesday night and is now in quarantine.
In a statement, Tomlinson said it’s a reminder to “continue to wear a mask, wash your hands, and use social distancing to help defeat the spread.”
Senator Tomlinson, now 75 years old, has held office since 1995. He is the owner of the Tomlinson Funeral Home on Bristol Pike and father to State Representative K.C. Tomlinson.
As of Thursday morning, more than 34,000 Bucks Countians have tested positive for the virus. Daily case counts are dropping to pre-Thanksgiving levels following spikes in late November and after Christmas.
