Legislator Sen. Doug Ericksen in Washington sick with COVID-19 in El Salvador

sen.  Doug Ericksen

BELTINGHAM, Washington — Ferndale state senator Doug Ericksen is sick with COVID-19 in El Salvador and can’t get antibody drugs to treat it.

Ericksen, a Republican representing the 42nd district in Whatcom County, has reached out to legislative colleagues for advice about receiving monoclonal antibodies, which are not available in that Latin American country, his spokesman Erik Smith told The Bellingham Herald on Friday.

In a message to members of the state house and Senate, Ericksen said he took a trip to El Salvador and tested positive for COVID-19 shortly after his arrival.

Smith said members of Senator’s staff were unable to reach Ericksen directly.

“We have been unable to reach Senator Ericksen, but we believe[the message]is true,” Smith said.
