Alabama Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth has tested positive for COVID-19, his office announced Wednesday.

According to a written release from his office, Ainsworth received a test after a member of his Sunday church group had contracted the coronavirus.

"Because I follow social distancing rules and wear a mask both in church and in my daily interactions, the positive result shows that even those of us who are the most cautious can be a risk," Ainsworth said in the press release.

Ainsworth said that he has no symptoms as of today, but will still "quarantine for the appropriate period and seek follow-up tests to ensure the virus has run its course before resuming public activities."
