Rep. Glenn “G.T.” Thompson (R-Pa.) disclosed Friday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 despite being vaccinated, hours after he had voted in person on the House floor.
Thompson’s office said in a statement that he “began experiencing cold-like symptoms” on Friday afternoon and subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.
Thompson, 62, is being treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center “out of an abundance of caution,” his office added.
“He is in good spirits and further updates will be made available in the coming days,” his office said.
Thompson is the 18th member of Congress – among 14 in the House and four in the Senate – to test positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated. Two additional House Republicans also tested positive over the summer, but it’s not clear whether they were vaccinated.
