“Well, I’ve tested positive for COVID. I’ve got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine,” Clinton tweeted. “I’m more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness. Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already!”
She added that her husband and former President Bill Clinton is fine.
“Bill tested negative and is feeling fine. He’s quarantining until our household is fully in the clear. Movie recommendations appreciated!

The news comes as White House press secretary Jen Psaki also tested positive for the virus. For Psaki, the test marked the second time in four months, keeping her from traveling to Europe with President Joe Biden.
The new high-profile cases are important, though case numbers nationwide have declined overall, and the nation seeks to return to pre-pandemic life after two years of restrictions.
