Rep. Tom Rice announced in a Facebook post on Monday that he, his wife and son had all tested positive for the coronavirus.

The South Carolina Republican became the eighth member of Congress to have a confirmed or presumed case of the virus, according to The Hill.

Rice wrote on Facebook that "We are all on the mend and doing fine," adding that "I was lucky, and it was not bad for me. I had a low fever and a mild cough. It was gone by Thursday. I never stopped eating or drinking or working or moving. The only bad thing is I have completely lost sense of taste and smell. CAN’T TASTE BACON!!!"

He concluded his message by writing, "We are finishing our quarantine and looking forward to seeing you all again."
