Sen. Joe Manchin and Sen. Lisa Murkowski test positive for Covid

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said Monday that he has tested positive for Covid, which could complicate the Senate’s push to finish a number of priorities in the two weeks leading up to the August recess.

Manchin, 74, who is fully vaccinated and boosted, tweeted Monday morning that he was “experiencing mild symptoms” from the virus.

“I will isolate and follow CDC guidelines as I continue to work remotely to serve West Virginians,” he said. His office declined to comment further.
