Three Texas Democrats who fled the state to subvert democracy have tested positive for COVID-19 which comes after they met with Vice President Kamala Harris earlier this week.
“Friday night, a Member of the Texas House Democratic Caucus tested positive for COVID,” the Texas House Democrats announced in a statement. “Saturday morning, two additional Members, each of whom are also fully vaccinated, tested positive on a rapid test.”
House Democrat Caucus Chairman Chris Turner responded by saying in a statement:
The House Democratic Caucus is following all CDC guidance and protocols. This is a sober reminder that COVID is still with us, and though vaccinations offer tremendous protection, we still must take necessary precautions. We are in touch with public health experts in Texas to provide additional guidance. Our caucus will follow all recommendations from public health experts as we continue our work.
The Texas Democrats asked that people respect “the privacy of Members and their personal health” which comes after photos surfaced
