Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., for the second this year, has tested positive for COVID-19 after attending last week's Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles.
"Yesterday, after learning of a potential exposure at the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, I was notified that I tested positive for COVID," Waters said in a statement released Tuesday. "I am currently isolating and have no symptoms."
Waters, who is vaccinated and double boosted, tested positive for the virus in April but said she did not experience any symptoms.
"If you haven't received the vaccine and/or booster, I encourage you to do so," Waters said in her Tuesday statement. "I am feeling fine and resting at home."
