After recovering from the coronavirus, Sen. Rand Paul is now volunteering at a local Kentucky hospital to help combat the disease.

"I appreciate all the best wishes I have received. I have been retested and I am negative. I have started volunteering at a local hospital to assist those in my community who are in need of medical help, including coronavirus patients. Together we will overcome this!" the Republican lawmaker said in a tweet.

The tweet included a photo of Paul wearing a white lab coat over scrubs.

Paul's office announced he tested positive for coronavirus on March 22. He was the first senator with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

Paul, an eye surgeon, is volunteering at TriStar Greenview Regional Hospital in Bowling Green, The Associated Press reports.

Hospital CEO Mike Sherrod said the senator is "lifting the spirits of patients and our colleagues" by volunteering.

"We appreciate Senator Paul and his support in recognizing our healthcare workers and providers at TriStar Greenview for their unwavering response to the COVID-19 pandemic," he said in a statement.
