In a statement this afternoon, Senator John Hickenlooper, who is fully-vaccinated, announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
“After experiencing mild symptoms, I tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19. I’m feeling much better and will continue to isolate at the direction of the Congressional Attending Physician. I’m grateful for the vaccine (and the scientists behind it) for limiting my symptoms and allowing us to continue our work for Colorado. If you haven’t been vaccinated, don’t wait for the virus — get the shot today, and a booster when it’s available too!”
Hickenlooper is scheduled for a Sept. 2 visit to Chaffee County.
