U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids, D-Kan., has tested positive for COVID-19, her office confirmed Friday.

In a statement, Davids, who is vaccinated, said she had only mild symptoms and is isolating at home, where she was already recovering from outpatient surgery.

“Earlier today, I received a positive COVID-19 PCR test result,” Davids said. “My symptoms are mild, and per CDC and House Attending Physician Guidance I am continuing to isolate at home, where I have been since an unrelated outpatient parathyroid surgery. I have followed CDC recommended precautions throughout this pandemic, including masking indoors in areas of high or substantial transmission.”

Davids is the latest lawmaker to experience a breakthrough case of COVID-19, or an infection after being vaccinated. U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said earlier this week that he had been infected with the virus and multiple U.S. House members have also confirmed cases in recent days.
