Senator Booker Tests Positive For COVID-19

United States Senator Cory Booker (D-New Jersey) announced on social media earlier this evening that he has tested positive for COVID-19.  The Newark Democrat said he began experiencing mild symptoms on Saturday and tested positive on Sunday night.

Booker posted that he has received two doses of the vaccine, as well as a booster shot, so he believes his symptoms would be much worse if he had not been vaccinated.

Earlier on Sunday, fellow Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren also revealed that she had tested positive for COVID and was experiencing mild symptoms.
