Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she has caught COVID – days after she was snapped partying maskless in Miami.
The Bronx Representative made the announcement on her official Twitter page Sunday night, sharing a statement on House of Representatives headed paper which said: ‘Representative Ocasio-Cortez has received a positive test result for COVID-19.
‘She is experiencing symptoms and is recovering at home. The Congresswoman received her booster shot this Fall, and encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all CDC guidance.’
AOC then added some of her own guidance in a follow-up tweet, writing: ‘For information on what to do if you’re exposed to COVID, test positive or want to schedule a test or vaccine in New York City — see our round-up of CDC and NYC resources here,’ before adding a link to a personal website.
It is unclear when or how AOC became infected.
Last week, AOC was pictured enjoying herself with her boyfriend in Miami. She was also snapped attending an outdoor drag brunch, maskless, with Pose star Billy Porter.
The progressive congresswoman was blasted by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for backing draconian restrictions in her home state of New York, then coming to the Sunshine State and enjoying its lack of COVID-19 protocols.
