Senator Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) announced Thursday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 in breakthrough cases.
Warnock said in a tweet that he tested positive for COVID-19 that afternoon after a “routine test.”
“I’m so thankful to be both vaccinated & boosted, and at the advice of the Attending Physician I plan to isolate,” Warnock said.
Warnock’s positive test follows an influx of COVID-19 cases among lawmakers, including Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine).
Warnock used his announcement to encourage COVID-19 vaccination.
“If you haven’t gotten your shot yet, I encourage you to do so,” Warnock said.
