Rep. Judy Chu, D-Pasadena, announced Wednesday that she has tested positive for COVID-19.
“I am currently asymptomatic and thankful to have received my vaccination and two booster shots,” Chu said in a statement. “I encourage everyone to get vaccinated and boosted if you have not already.”
The 68-year-old Chu, who sits on the House Ways and Means Committee and chairs the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, has served in Congress since 2009.
“On Tuesday morning, I took a rapid antigen test and received a negative result,” Chu said. “I routinely get PCR testing and on Tuesday evening, I received a positive result. After consulting with the House physician, I am isolating in accordance with CDC guidelines.”
