Duckworth to Work in Isolation After COVID Diagnosis, Mild Symptoms


[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) issued the following statement after being diagnosed with COVID-19 today:

“At the guidance of the Attending Physician, I will be working in isolation through the end of this week after being diagnosed with COVID-19 today to keep my family, colleagues and staff as safe as possible. My symptoms remain mild and I am thankful that I’m fully vaccinated and double boosted, as I—and families of the more than one million Americans we’ve lost to this pandemic—know it could be much worse. I cannot encourage my fellow Americans more strongly to get vaccinated and continue getting your boosters as advised by medical professionals across the country and around the globe.”
