A representative for the United States Senate said on Sunday that Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who is also the most senior Democrat in the body, has tested positive for the coronavirus and is experiencing very minor symptoms.

According to the statement, “The Leader shows extremely minimal symptoms, despite being fully vaccinated and having received two boosts.” “In accordance with the recommendations made by the CDC, Leader Schumer will remain in isolation and work from a distant location this week.”

The Senate, which has an equal number of Democrats and Republicans and in which the President has the power to break ties in the event that it becomes necessary to do so, is scheduled to return on Monday after being out of session for two weeks.

According to the statement, “even if he is not physically in the Capitol, he will continue with his vigorous schedule and be in near continuous communication with his colleagues via virtual meetings and his distinctive flip phone.”
