Republican U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi said Friday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

“I am fully vaccinated and in good health. I will work from home for the next few days. I look forward to being back in person soon,” Wicker said in a statement.

Wicker, 70, was also diagnosed with COVID-19 in August. About two weeks after that diagnosis, he said he had received a clean bill of health and was ready to start traveling the state again.
