Rep. Jan Schakowsky has disclosed that she has tested positive for COVID-19.
The Illinois Democrat made the announcement Wednesday night, tweeting: "As I mentioned in my weekly video, my husband Bob tested positive for COVID Friday. Yesterday I was having a bit of fever and feeling ill. After several negative tests in the days before, I tested positive for COVID last night. We are both vaccinated and received the booster."
And, in another tweet, she added: "I’m feeling ok, and quarantining with my husband and our dogs. Together, we can stop the spread by wearing masks, getting vaccinated and getting tested."
She joins a list of other lawmakers, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who have recently said they tested positive.
