GOP Sen. Roger Wicker Tests Positive For COVID-19

Republican Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker announced in a press statement on Thursday that he had recently tested positive for COVID-19.

The senator tested positive for the coronavirus after experiencing “mild symptoms,” and will be self-quarantining for the time being, according to the press statement released by Wicker’s Communications Director, Phillip Waller.

“Senator Wicker tested positive this morning for the COVID-19 virus after immediately seeking a test due to mild symptoms,” the statement began. “Senator Wicker is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, is in good health, and is being treated by his Tupelo-based physician.”

Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsay Graham and Republican South Carolina Rep. Ralph Norman announced in August that they had tested positive for COVID-19, while Republican Florida Rep. Vern Buchanan tested positive in July. All three also tested positive for the virus despite being fully vaccinated.
