STATEWIDE — Maine Senate Majority Leader Eloise Vitelli announced she has tested positive for COVID-19 following a PCR test Wednesday.
According to a statement from her office, she is vaccinated and only has mild symptoms.
“Upon learning of my positive test results, I immediately alerted all close contacts so they can get tested as soon as possible,” said Vitelli. “I wanted to share my positive test results with the public for the sake of transparency, but also a reminder that we must continue to use every tool in our toolbox to protect ourselves and each other.”
Vitelli said she’s grateful for the COVID-19 vaccine and is isolating safely at home until full recovery.
Senate President Troy Jackson also tested positive earlier this week.
