Congressman Bill Pascrell has tested positive for Covid-19.

“I am fully vaccinated and boostered. Blessedly my symptoms are mild,” said Pascrell. “I am working from home and will closely monitor my health.”

Pascrell, who is in his 80s, is in a high risk group because of his age.

“Omicron spreads like wildfire and is no joke. If you haven’t yet get off your butt and get vaccinated and get boostered: these shots are the only reason my case is luckily mild. Don’t worry about me: get your shots!” said Pascrell.

Paterson has witnessed a surge in Covid-19 cases. It shattered the previous record set in January on Wednesday.
