Rep. Watson-Coleman tests positive for COVID-19
Rep. Bonnie Watson-Coleman (D-New Jersey) has tested positive for COVID-19.
The congresswoman says that she believes that she was exposed to the virus during protective isolation at the U.S. Capitol during the attempted insurrection last week.
Coleman says that she is experiencing mild, cold-like symptoms from the virus, but will be going to the hospital as a precaution.
"While I feel OK, on my doctor's advice I'm on my way to a local hospital for monoclonal antibody treatment," Coleman wrote on Twitter.
The congresswoman did receive the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, which was made available to members of Congress.
