KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Tennessee Senate race candidates Dr. Manny Sethi and Bill Hagerty both attended the Hamilton County Lincoln Day Dinner were an unnamed attendee tested positive for COVID-19.

The Hamilton County Health Department confirmed a person who attended the event Friday was in their infectious period.

A representative said Sethi tested negative for COVID-19 on Wednesday. WZTZ reported that Sethi called for Hagerty to be tested, as well.

“After hearing the news this afternoon that a Hamilton GOP Dinner attendee has tested positive for COVID, I’ll be going to get tested out of an abundance of caution,” Dr. Sethi tweeted on Wednesday. “I encourage Bill Hagerty to go do the same, along with any others who think they may have been exposed.”
