Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said Monday she recently tested positive for COVID-19.
She made the announcement Monday on Twitter.
In the brief statement, the Republican said she recently tested positive after experiencing flu-like symptoms. The statement did not specify the timing of the test. Her campaign posted photos of events that Murkowski participated in Friday and Saturday in Fairbanks.
"I will be following guidance and advice from doctors and will be quarantining at home in Alaska while continuing my work remotely," Murkowski's statement said.
Karina Borger, a spokesperson in Murkowski's Senate office, said by email Murkowski is "vaccinated and boosted." Borger said she had nothing more to share beyond the social media post.
Murkowski is Alaska's senior U.S. senator. She is seeking reelection this year, but is facing a GOP primary challenge from Kelly Tshibaka, who is endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., also announced Monday he has tested positive for COVID-19. He said in a statement online he is experiencing mild symptoms.
