Rep. Mace tests positive for COVID-19

Congresswoman Nancy Mace (SC-01) tested positive Monday for COVID-19.

“After one of my children tested positive for COVID-19 this morning, I decided to also get tested. I tested positive. This is now my second time having COVID — and I’m fully vaccinated,” Mace said in a release. “I’m feeling OK. This is more mild than the first time. I’m completing quarantine and working from home as I recover. We are all frustrated with our common enemy COVID-19. I am praying everyone can stay healthy and we can all get past this soon.”

Previously, Mace tested positive on June 23, 2020 and has frequently discussed her experiences with long haul COVID. She was fully vaccinated in the spring of 2021.
