Rep. Adam Schiff tests positive for the coronavirus
The Burbank Democrat announced the infection Tuesday but said he was ‘feeling fine, and grateful to be vaccinated and boosted.’
Rep. Adam B. Schiff announced Tuesday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.
“I’m feeling fine, and grateful to be vaccinated and boosted,” the 61-year-old Burbank Democrat tweeted. “In the coming days, I will quarantine and follow CDC guidelines. And remember, please get vaccinated!”
Schiff chairs the House Intelligence Committee.
He didn’t indicate how or where he might have become infected or whether it involved the new BA.2 Omicron subvariant, which has fueled worrying upticks in caseloads overseas and is spreading in the United States.
What is required on the anniversary of Jan. 6 is nothing less than a national awakening.
Several other political figures have tested positive for the coronavirus recently, including White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, CIA Director William Burns and New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy.
President Biden, meanwhile, received his fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine last week.
