WASHINGTON — Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Cory Booker of New Jersey say they have tested positive for COVID-19, as the country deals with another surge in cases and the emergence of the omicron variant.
In separate statements Sunday, the Democrats said they had been fully vaccinated with two doses and a booster and their symptoms were mild. They also encouraged others to get the trio of shots if eligible.
Warren tweeted: “Thankfully, I am only experiencing mild symptoms & am grateful for the protection provided against serious illness that comes from being vaccinated & boosted.”
She didn’t elaborate on where she might have contracted the virus but said she’s regularly tested and turned up negative for COVID-19 earlier this past week. Spokespersons for her office didn’t respond to an email seeking comment Sunday.
Warren was at the U.S. Capitol this week along with other senators as Democrats seek to pass President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion Build Back Better social and environment bill.
In a statement from his office, Booker said: “I’m beyond grateful to have received two doses of vaccine and, more recently, a booster — I’m certain that without them I would be doing much worse.”

Giving back. Celebrities may be beloved by people around the world, but it’s not a one-sided relationship. Stars such as Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban adore their fans right back, going out of their way to make sure their supporters know that they are appreciated through acts of kindness.
For some, like Drake and Katy Perry, that means getting in some serious face time with their admirers, while others help out in more creative ways: J.K. Rowling lent her signature for an uber-personal tattoo, while Thor’s Chris Hemsworth gave a traveling fan a lift to his destination.
In 2021, single mom Angelia Cantrell set up a GoFundMe page, asking for assistance to keep her home after she lost her husband to COVID-19. As she continued her pleas, Kim Kardashian quietly donated $3,000 to the cause.
“When I saw the donation, I literally fell to the floor in tears. I shared my GoFundMe link with several celebrities, including Supernatural TV stars Alaina Huffman and Lisa Berry who donated as well, just simply asking them to share,” Cantrell told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “I never dreamed that celebrities would take notice of our story, let alone donate. … Words cannot describe how blessed and thankful we are. This, by far, has been one of the biggest miracles God has given.”
Cantrell further discussed the Skims mogul’s generosity: “During this difficult time in my life, I prayed daily and continuously kept my faith throughout. When I received the donation, I had hours left to gather the money and pay my landlord to avoid eviction. Words cannot describe how blessed and thankful we are. This, by far, has been one of the biggest miracles God has given.”
Less than a year earlier, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum announced via social media that she wanted to “spread the love” by sending 1,000 fans $500 in December 2021. She wanted to help those who were “struggling, worried about how they’re going pay rent” or “put food on the table” amid the holiday season.
The KKW Beauty founder is not the first celebrity to give back to her devoted fans. Shaquille O’Neal once paid for a young man’s engagement ring for his bride-to-be after they met in a jewelry store.
“Whenever I leave the house, I just try to do a good deed,” the professional athlete revealed during an April 2021 episode of NBA on TNT. “I’m just trying to make people smile, that’s all.”
