WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree has tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time in two months.

The Democratic Congresswoman who represents Maine’s First Congressional District announced the diagnosis on Twitter at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. Although I am only experiencing mild symptoms thanks to being vaccinated and boosted, for the safety of others I will be isolating at home while working remotely for my constituents,” Pingree stated in her tweet.

The North Haven resident also tested positive on July 11. That time, she also experienced only mild symptoms.

Pingree is seeking re-election for an eighth consecutive two-year term to represent southern Maine in the U.S. House. She was first elected to Congress in 2008. She also served as state senator for Knox County from 1992 to 2000.
