WATERBURY, Conn. — Connecticut U.S. Rep. Jahana Hayes says she has tested positive for the coronavirus after taking a routine test before traveling.
The Democrat's office announced the positive test on Twitter Thursday night. A statement from her office says she is fully vaccinated and has received a booster shot.
The statement says she is not currently experiencing any symptoms and has been advised to quarantine.
The 48-year-old previously contracted COVID-19 in September 2020. Before that, she was forced to quarantine after her husband, who was a first responder in Waterbury, tested positive for the illness.
She's in her second term, representing Connecticut's 5th Congressional District. It's in the western portion of the state.
