Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) speaks at a news conference in New York on Jan. 9, 2021.
Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Espaillat was among the lawmakers who spoke on the House floor Wednesday during the debate over impeaching Trump for a second time. The lawmaker also said he received the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine last week.
“I am following guidance from my physician and quarantining at home after having tested positive for COVID-19,” Espaillat said in a tweet Thursday morning. “I received the second dose of the #COVID19vaccine last week and understand the affects take time. I have continued to be tested regularly, wear my mask and follow the recommended guidelines.”
According to Naor Bar-Zeev, an infectious-diseases physician and epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, individuals “should not really consider themselves protected until after a week or two following dose two” of the vaccine.
Espaillat is the latest House member to test positive for the coronavirus in the wake of last week’s storming of the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob.
During the riot, House members and some staff sheltered in a cramped, windowless room with no more than an arm’s length of distance between them. But several Republican members hunkered down maskless, refusing to use the face coverings that their Democratic colleagues and staffers were begging them to wear as protection from the coronavirus, which thrives in such low-ventilation indoor environments.
