Republican politician had COVID-19 for a week before revealing to colleagues
According to Business Insider, the Republican lawmaker learned that he had COVID-19 on May 20.
He waited until May 27 to reveal the news to his colleagues and the public.
"Out of respect for my family, and those who I may have exposed, I chose to keep my positive case private," he said in a statement.
While concealing his positive test results, Lewis publicly called for an end to Pennsylvania's shutdown.
Colleagues responded with outrage saying hiding his positive test results from co-workers and the public "is reprehensible".
