More than 70 members of Congress have tested positive for Covid since the pandemic began, according to the legislative tracking website GovTrack. Buchanan represents Florida’s 16th Congressional District, which includes Sarasota, and is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
Illnesses from coronavirus infections after full vaccination are expected but rare, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency is currently monitoring cases that result in hospitalization or death. The congressman added, “This should serve as a reminder that although the vaccines provide a very high-degree of protection, we must remain vigilant in the fight against Covid-19.”
