Texas Rep. Kevin Brady tests positive for COVID-19
WASHINGTON (Gray DC) - Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) announced on Twitter Tuesday night he tested positive for coronavirus.
Brady said he is quarantined and will begin treatment Wednesday.
Like many congressional lawmakers, Brady says he received a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in mid-December. The Pfizer vaccine series consists of two doses.
“As recommended, I received a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine Dec 18 & also recently tested negative for Covid on New Years Day,” he said in his tweet.
Brady is one of more than 40 House lawmakers who have now tested positive for the virus.
He began his 13th term in Congress this past Sunday.
