Rep. Adriano Espaillat has tested positive for coronavirus, he announced on Twitter on Thursday.
Espaillat said that he tested positive despite receiving both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
“I am following guidance from my physician and quarantining at home after having tested positive for COVID-19,” the Congressman tweeted.
“I received the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine last week and understand the [effects] take time. I have continued to be tested regularly, wear my mask and follow the recommended guidelines,” he said.
The announcement came one day after Espaillat gave a speech on the House floor, advocating for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
