Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker has tested positive for COVID-19.
A statement issued by Wicker’s Communications Director Phillip Waller explains that the senator got tested after experiencing mild symptoms.
“Senator Wicker tested positive this morning for the COVID-19 virus after immediately seeking a test due to mild symptoms. Senator Wicker is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, is in good health, and is being treated by his Tupelo-based physician. He is isolating, and everyone with whom Senator Wicker has come in close contact recently has been notified,” Waller said.
Wicker won’t miss any votes in D.C. as the Senate calendar shows that they will not be back in session until September 13th.
