(CBS4) – There are new coronavirus concerns surrounding Amy Coney Barrett’s meetings with U.S. senators including Sen. Cory Gardner, Colorado’s junior senator. Barrett has tested negative for COVID but she met with Sen. Mike Lee of Utah on Tuesday, the same day as Gardner, and Lee has now tested positive.

That positive test has prompted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to call on all of those involved to quarantine.
Gardner is scheduled to debate his challenger John Hickenlooper on Friday night in Pueblo. Gardner has tested negative for COVID and tweeted that the debate is still on. “I look forward to seeing John on the debate stage tonight in Pueblo,” he wrote.

A meeting between Sen. Michael Bennet, Colorado’s senior and Barrett’s isn’t likely, according to a Bennet spokeswoman. Barrett hasn’t requested a meeting with him.
