Sen. Elizabeth Warren tested positive for COVID on Sunday, the Massachusetts Democrat shared in a tweet.

“I regularly test for COVID & while I tested negative earlier this week, today I tested positive with a breakthrough case,” the progressive former presidential candidate said.

“Thankfully, I am only experiencing mild symptoms & am grateful for the protection provided against serious illness that comes from being vaccinated & boosted.”

Numerous members of Congress have tested positive for COVID. Last week, Rep. Brett Guthrie, a Republican from Kentucky, announced he had contracted the dreaded virus.

News of Warren’s diagnosis came as the nation was bracing for a surge fueled by the omicron variant.

The U.S. is heading for “a tough few weeks to months,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease expert, predicted Sunday.
