Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer tests positive for COVID, spokesperson says

NEW YORK — Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has tested positive for COVID-19 and is reporting very mild symptoms, his spokesman said Sunday night.

Schumer, 71, is fully vaccinated and has received two booster shots, spokesman Justin Goodman said in a statement.

The New York Democrat will follow federal health guidelines and self-quarantine this week while working remotely, Goodman said.

“Anyone who knows Leader Schumer knows that even if he’s not physically at the Capitol, through virtual meetings and his trademark cellphone, he’ll continue with his robust schedule and stay in near-constant contact with his colleagues,” said Goodman.
