U.S. Representative Mike Bost has tested positive for COVID-19. It's the second time the Murphysboro Republican has tested positive for the virus.

Bost released a statement Tuesday, saying he'd gotten the positive result during a routine test, has no symptoms, and is isolating to protect others.

“Following a routine test, I learned early this morning that I have tested positive for COVID-19. I am fully vaccinated and experiencing no symptoms. However, for the safety of my constituents, staff, and colleagues, I will be adjusting my schedule for the week and isolating according to the guidance of the Office of the Attending Physician.”

Bost is fully vaccinated. He previously tested positive for COVID back in October of 2020.
