Hillary Clinton has tested positive for COVID-19, she tweeted Tuesday. The 74-year-old former secretary of state said that she is experiencing “some mild cold symptoms” but said she is “feeling fine.”
“I’m more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness,” Clinton added. “Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already!”
Clinton said that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, 75, has tested negative, adding that he will quarantine “until our household is fully in the clear.”
Clinton is the latest of several political figures to have recently tested positive for the virus. Last week, former President Barack Obamathat he had tested positive as well. He said at the time that he was “feeling fine” other than a scratchy throat.
On Tuesday, White House press secretary Jen Psakia positive test. In a statement, Psaki said she had two “socially-distanced” meetings with President Biden one day earlier, but said he is not considered a close contact based on CDC guidelines.
