Rep. Morelle tests positive for COVID-19
Rep. Joe Morelle, (D-25), has tested positive for COVID-19.
“After experiencing mild symptoms, I have tested positive for COVID-19. I have followed all guidance from the Center for Disease Control and my physician and will remain isolated until it is safe to resume my official duties. Thankfully, I am fully vaccinated so my symptoms remain mild,” Morelle said in a statement.
Morelle urged everyone “to get the COVID-19 vaccine to protect themselves—and our community—from the severe impacts this disease can have. Had I not been vaccinated, my experience could have been much different.”
TheHill.com reported that Morelle is the seventh fully vaccinated House member to test positive for COVID-19 since July.
