U.S. Sen. John Hickenlooper announced Thursday afternoon he’s tested positive for COVID-19.
I’ve tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19. I feel good but will isolate per docs instructions. I’m grateful for the vaccine (& the scientists behind it!) for limiting my symptoms.
If you haven’t gotten your shot—get it today! And a booster when it’s available too!

We’re glad he’s feeling fine and not having any symptoms, apparently. But it begs the question why he got tested in the first place.
Was he exposed to someone who wasn’t wearing a mask and hadn’t been vaccinated? Did he fail to follow CDC guidelines?

The Senate is in recess until Sept. 13 and Hick hasn’t made any public appearances since Aug. 11. We’re not even sure whether he’s in Colorado, Washington, D.C., or on vacation.
Wherever you are, Hick, we hope you get well soon.
And please, don’t forget to wash your hands.
