One woman in Springfield has identified herself as having COVID-19. Lisa Badger was tested on Thursday and Friday in Springfield and is now quarantined in her home.
Badger, a Springfield Park District Trustee, says she will remain isolated for the next two weeks. Badger had been at a major event in Springfield on March 8th, a woman’s march that was held outside the Illinois State Capitol. One of the people she came into contact with was Democratic Congressional Candidate Betsy Dirksen-Londrigan.
She says she will be self-isolating for 14 days.
Londrigan’s name is on the Tuesday ballot for Congress. With a win, she would be in a rematch against Republican Rodney Davis for seat in the 13th Congressional district.
