Rep. Thomas Massie has tested positive for COVID-19, he tweeted Wednesday morning.

Massie, a Lewis County Republican who represents Northern Kentucky, took an at-home test, and the results were confirmed by a PCR result. He tweeted that he experienced cold and allergy symptoms for one day but feels better now.

He believes his symptoms are mild because this is the second time he's contracted the virus.

Massie said he isn't vaccinated or boosted and that he won't be voting, meeting in-person or making public appearances until next week.

This comes after Massie tweeted last week that his office won't comply with Washington, D.C.'s vaccine mandate, which went into effect Saturday and requires proof of vaccination at indoor facilities within the city.

Massie tweeted that his office won't show proof of vaccination or order take-out from restaurants that require it, instead choosing to order food from restaurants in Virginia or bringing their own.
