DENVER (AP) — U.S. Rep. Jason Crow says he has tested positive for COVID-19 after returning from an official congressional delegation visit to Ukraine.

In a tweet on Sunday, the Colorado Democrat said he is fully vaccinated and got a booster shot and is experiencing only mild symptoms.

Crow encouraged everyone eligible to get vaccinated and boosted “to help prevent major illness and protect our community.” He also said he would continue to push for affordable access to rapid and reliable testing for all Americans.

Also on Sunday, Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Cory Booker of New Jersey said they have also tested positive for COVID-19, as the country deals with another surge in cases and the emergence of the omicron variant.
