Republican South Carolina Rep. Ralph Norman announced Thursday that he tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated.

“After experiencing minor symptoms this morning, I sought a Covid-19 test and was just informed the test results were positive,” Norman said in a tweet.

“Thankfully, I have been fully vaccinated and my symptoms remain mild,” Norman added. “To every extent possible, I will continue my work virtually while in quarantine for the next ten (10) days.”
