COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCSC) - South Carolina Attorney General Wilson said Tuesday he will self-quarantine after learning he was exposed to someone who has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

Wilson learned of the exposure Tuesday, spokesman Robert Kittle said. Wilson plans to work from home for the next 14 days.

“He feels fine and has no symptoms but is taking this precaution to comply with CDC guidelines,” Kittle said.

Kittle said Wilson decided to make a public announcement because he has had to cancel meetings and wants to encourage everyone to follow CDC guidelines on COVID-19.
