Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said Thursday she has tested positive for Covid, putting her among latest in the string of cases among the capital’s political class.

“Friends — Yesterday, I tested positive for COVID,” Bowser tweeted Thursday morning. “After experiencing allergy symptoms this week, I took an at-home test yesterday and a PCR test confirmed the positive result.”

Bowser, 49, is fully vaccinated and said she is experiencing “mild cold-like/allergy-like symptoms.” She will work from home to comply with the CDC’s isolation protocols.

The virus has pummeled high-ranking Washington government members in recent days. On Wednesday, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo and Attorney General Merrick Garland tested positive. So did Vice President Kamala Harris’ communications director, Jamal Simmons, who was in attendance at Tuesday’s Affordable Care Act event, where he was maskless and shook hands with former president Barack Obama.
