A spokesperson for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced Sunday night that Schumer had tested positive for COVID-19.
Justin Goodman, the New York senator who has been vaccinated and double boosted, said in a statement that he is experiencing mild symptoms.
“COVID-19 was found to be present in Leader Schumer’s bloodstream as a result of a routine blood test. Because the Leader is fully vaccinated and double-booted, he is experiencing only mild symptoms, “According to Goodman. For this reason, “He is grateful to have had the vaccine protect him, and he urges everyone to get vaccinated as often as possible.”
In accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, Schumer will quarantine himself this week and work from home, Goodman said.
Even if he isn’t physically present in the Capitol, “Leader Schumer will continue to maintain his busy schedule and stay in near-constant contact” with colleagues through virtual meetings and a trademark flip phone, he added. Our weekly Senate floor schedule will be updated as the week progresses, as we do every week.”
After a two-week recess, the Senate will return to session on Monday.
