Colorado U.S. Rep. Jason Crow has tested positive for a breakthrough COVID-19 infection, he said on Twitter on Sunday night, adding that he had mild symptoms.
“I just returned from an official congressional delegation visit to Ukraine and tested positive for a breakthrough COVID infection,” he said on Twitter.
“I’m thankful to be fully vaccinated and boosted and experiencing only mild symptoms (the vaccine is safe and effective).”
Crow also tweeted that everyone should get vaccinated if they’re eligible.
Two other Democrats, Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Cory Booker of New Jersey, said Sunday they have tested positive for COVID-19, as the country deals with another surge in cases and the emergence of the omicron variant.
Warren tweeted: “Thankfully, I am only experiencing mild symptoms & am grateful for the protection provided against serious illness that comes from being vaccinated & boosted.”
In a statement from his office, Booker said: “I’m beyond grateful to have received two doses of vaccine and, more recently, a booster — I’m certain that without them I would be doing much worse.”
