Georgia Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler tested positive for the coronavirus on Friday and later received an inconclusive result on Saturday evening, her campaign announced.

It’s not yet known how the diagnosis will affect her campaign schedule. The nationally-watched runoff, that will determine one of two Georgia races and control of the US Senate will take place on January 5.

"Senator Loeffler took two COVID tests on Friday morning. Her rapid test results were negative and she was cleared to attend Friday's events. She was informed later in the evening after public events on Friday that her PCR test came back positive, but she was retested Saturday morning after conferring with medical officials and those results came back inconclusive on Saturday evening," said campaign spokesperson Stephen Lawson in a statement to CNN.

"She has no symptoms and she will continue to follow CDC guidelines by quarantining until retesting is conclusive and an update will be provided at that time," Lawson said.

Loeffler was maskless with Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. David Perdue during campaign events most of the day Friday. The trio rode on a bus from the airport to two campaign events for the Georgia Senate seat runoff elections in January. It is not clear whether they would have to quarantine after Loeffler’s mixed results. 

On November 21, Kelly Loeffler tweeted a video of the campaign with the caption, “Thrilled to welcome Vice President @Mike_Pence to the stage for a HUGE crowd in Gainesville! Georgia — let’s win this"



 

The campaign official added that Loeffler is notifying those with whom she had direct contact with while she awaits further tests. "Senator Loeffler is in my thoughts. I pray that her test results come back negative and that she is back on the campaign trail soon. Blessings," said Rev. Raphael Warnock, her Democratic opponent in the upcoming runoff.



 

People were quick to share their opinions on Twitter saying, “Someone needs to explain to Kelly Loeffler that insider trading on Covid isn't meant to be taken literally.” Another tweet read, “So Kelly Loeffler is now positive and was with Pence Friday with NO MASKS! Perdue was also with them. JFC.” “Thoughts & prayers for Kelly Loeffler (not saying what I am thinking or praying for),” wrote another.



 



 



 

A Twitter user made fun of a conspiracy going around that said only Republicans get coronavirus writing, “This reminds me of all the MAGA comments questioning why only republicans get Covid and insinuating it’s a conspiracy.” Another comment said, “Well apparently Kelly Loeffler didn’t know she couldn’t just buy the results she wanted.” Another tweet said, “On the first day of COVIDmas, my newsfeed gave to me, Don Trump Jr. testing positively! On the second day of COVIDmas my newsfeed gave to me, Kelly Loeffler and Don Trump Jr testing positively! On the third day... (to be cont.)”



 



 



 

A Twitter user reminded the Georgia Republican Sen. about karma as they said, “'Kelly Loeffler' Gotcha see Karma is a b**ch not named Kelly but named Carmaroma!” Another similar tweet deemed the incident as getting what they deserve, “May God give Kelly Loeffler and all of the other wicked enablers of this past administration their just deserves. And may the Angel Gabriel stand at the ready to serve it.”
