NEW ORLEANS - Congressman Cedric Richmond, who's been selected to join President-Elect Joe Biden's administration, has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Bloomberg reported Richmond's diagnosis Thursday. The congressman reportedly wasn't in close contact with Biden recently, and the president-elect has since tested negative.

Richmond is expected to vacate his congressional seat sometime before Biden's inauguration in January.
