Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who is fully vaccinated and has had a booster shot, has tested positive for COVID-19, her office said Sunday.

“She is experiencing symptoms and recovering at home,” her office said in a statement. “The Congresswoman received her booster shot this Fall, and encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all CDC guidance.”

The progressive lawmaker followed the announcement with a tweet promoting testing and treatment in New York City, where her district is located.
