SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — Michigan State Rep. Kyra Harris Bolden, D-Southfield, confirmed via social media that she tested positive for COVID-19.

Bolden said in the post that she came into contact with someone who contracted the virus on Nov. 12, and she's been quarantining ever since.

“This virus is very real, and each of us must be responsible to do all that we can to ensure we are staying safe, and that means quarantining after exposure, and informing folks we may have come in contact with after receiving a positive test result,” Bolden said in the post, encouraging her fellow lawmakers and followers to take COVID-19 seriously.

Bolden is the fifth Michigan lawmaker to announce a positive COVID-19 diagnosis this month, joining Jim Ananich (D-Flint), Kim LaSata (R-Bainbridge Township), Ann Bollin (R-Brighton) and Scott VanSingel (R-Grant).
