"I just returned from an official congressional delegation visit to Ukraine and tested positive for a breakthrough COVID infection," Rep. Crow said in a statement released Sunday. Crow represents Colorado's Sixth Congressional District.

"I'm thankful to be fully vaccinated and boosted and experiencing only mild symptoms (the vaccine is safe and effective)," he stated.

"Everyone eligible should get vaccinated and boosted to help prevent major illness and protect the wider community," Crow added.

He also said he will continue to push for "affordable access to rapid, reliable testing for all Americans."

Officials say Crow is now quarantining at home.

Crow was among three Democratic members of Congress who announced Sunday that they have breakthrough coronavirus infections.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Cory Booker of New Jersey shared that they had tested positive for COVID-19 via tweets from their official accounts.
