”After one of my children tested positive for COVID-19 this morning, I decided to also get tested. I tested positive. This is now my second time having COVID — and I’m fully vaccinated,” Mace said in a statement Monday. ”I’m feeling ok. This is more mild than the first time. I’m completing quarantine and working from home as I recover. We are all frustrated with our common enemy COVID-19. I am praying everyone can stay healthy and we can all get past this soon.”
According to the congresswoman’s statement, she first had the disease in June 2020, and has publicly discussed her ”long COVID” situation. She became fully vaccinated in the spring of 2021.
Mace is not the only federal lawmaker to come down with the virus this week.
The office of Rep. Alexandia Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., also announced that she has tested positive for COVID-19 and is ”experiencing symptoms and recovering at home.”
”The Congresswoman received her booster shot this fall and encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidance,” the statement said.
AOC was recently spotted vacationing maskless in Miami, Florida, according to numerous reports.
