Senator Mitt Romney is in isolation and will be working remotely after having tested positive for COVID-19.
He is fully vaccinated and boosted and is not showing any symptoms. His wife tested negative.
Earlier this month, Romney criticized President Joe Biden’s administration for what he saw as a failure to ramp up testing availability ahead of the omicron variant, according to the Deseret News.
“I think, unfortunately, the administration was wrong in not building testing capacity at a time when we all thought COVID was going away,” he said at a Senate hearing.
