AG Jeff Landry quashes rumor that he dined at a restaurant after testing positive for COVID-19


BATON ROUGE, La. (WDSU) — Attorney General Jeff Landry took to social media Thursday to shut down rumors that he dined at a restaurant after he tested positive for the coronavirus.

Landry announced his positive result on Tuesday and was unable to meet with Vice President Mike Pence when he visited Baton Rouge.  He said on Tuesday that he was in quarantine.

According to a tweet posted by Landry, a story posted on a website and social media claiming he went to a restaurant after testing positive is “categorically untrue.”

Landry asked people to focus on “facts, not fiction” when dealing with the coronavirus.
