JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan congressman says he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg says his symptoms are mild so far.

Walberg was reelected to a seventh term in the 7th District, which stretches from suburban Lansing to southern Michigan. He defeated Democrat Gretchen Driskell for a third time.

Walberg says he hasn't been at a public event in more than a week.

Walberg is the second House member from Michigan to disclose a coronavirus infection.

Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga said he had it in October.
