BOSTON (WHDH) - Massachusetts Congressman Stephen F. Lynch has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, his office announced Friday.
Lynch was tested after a staff member from his Boston office tested positive for the virus earlier this week, his office said in a statement.
His test came back positive on Friday afternoon.
Lynch had received a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine prior to the positive test, according to his office, and he had a negative test before attending President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
“While Mr. Lynch remains asymptomatic and feels fine, he will self-quarantine and will vote by proxy in Congress during the coming week,” his office said.
Massachusetts Congresswoman Lori Trahan announced on Thursday that she had tested positive.
