Coronavirus

New York Congressman Latest to Test Positive for Virus

January 14, 2021

Democratic Rep. Adriano Espaillat of New York says he has the coronavirus. He's the latest House member to report testing positive since dozens of lawmakers huddled together for protection during the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Espaillat says in a statement that he's quarantining at home and will keep up his work representing his Upper Manhattan district.

At least three other House members have tested positive after a group of representatives fled to a secure location on Capitol Hill when supporters of President Donald Trump stormed and ransacked the Capitol.

It’s not clear where and when lawmakers caught the virus. But the Capitol’s attending physician has told House members they might have been exposed to someone in the room who had the virus.
