Higgins has not told CNN whether he has been vaccinated, according to a detailed survey of members by the network. “Becca and I had COVID before, early on, in January 2020, before the world really knew what it was,” he wrote. It is unclear if testing confirmed the couple’s Covid diagnosis last year. CNN has reached out to his Washington, DC, office for comment.
