“Well, I've tested positive for COVID. I've got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine. I'm more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness. Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven't already!” Hillary declared on Tuesday.
“Bill tested negative and is feeling fine. He's quarantining until our household is fully in the clear. Movie recommendations appreciated!” she said.
The announcement comes one week after former President Barack Obama confirmed he tested positive to the virus. Obama's positive test was followed by an equally positive result from Vice President Kamala Harris's husband Doug Emhoff. The two men, Obama and Emhoff, suffered from mild symptoms and are reportedly getting better.
After Clinton’s announcement, the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, said she had tested positive for coronavirus for the second time, a few months after testing positive in October.
“Today, in preparation for travel to Europe, I took a PCR test this morning. That test came back positive, which means I will be adhering to CDC guidance and no longer be traveling on the President's trip to Europe,” Psaki explained in a statement that was released prior to her White House press briefing.
Psaki will not be traveling to Europe along with President Joe Biden.
