3 Texas House Democrats in D.C. have tested positive for COVID-19. All 3 are fully vaccinated.

Per the Houston Chronicle “One member tested positive for COVID Friday night, followed by two members who tested positive on a rapid test Saturday morning, according to a statement from the caucus. State Rep. Chris Turner, a Grand Prairie Democrat and chair of the caucus, said the members are following guidance and protocols issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”

Turner said “This is a sober reminder that COVID is still with us, and though vaccinations offer tremendous protection, we still must take necessary precautions.”

“We are in touch with public health experts in Texas to provide additional guidance. Our caucus will follow all recommendations from public health experts as we continue our work,” he added.
