Statement on Ossoff Family COVID-19 Diagnosis

Dr. Alisha Kramer has received a positive diagnosis. Her husband, Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jon Ossoff, is awaiting test results.

Atlanta, Ga. — Today, the campaign of Georgia’s Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jon Ossoff released the following statement: 

“Last night, Jon’s wife, Dr. Alisha Kramer, an OB/GYN physician at a local hospital, received a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. Dr. Kramer started isolation immediately after experiencing symptoms earlier this week. Jon is also experiencing symptoms and was tested for the virus this morning. His results are pending,” said Miryam Lipper, Ossoff campaign communications director. 

“Dr. Kramer, like so many health care workers, puts herself at risk to care for Georgia’s pregnant women, delivering mothers, and newborn babies. She is a hero.

“Jon has not held or participated in an in-person campaign event in over a month and will remain in isolation until medical professionals clear both him and Dr. Kramer.

“We will keep the public informed with updated information, but right now we are just praying for the family’s health and full and speedy recovery.”
