Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman said Monday she is self-isolating after testing positive for the coronavirus, blaming her diagnosis on several Republican lawmakers who reportedly went maskless during last week’s violence at the U.S. Capitol.
“I received a positive test result for COVID-19, and am home resting at this time,” the New Jersey Democrat said in a statement. “While I am experiencing mild, cold-like symptoms, I remain in good spirits and will continue to work on behalf of my constituents.”
A press release from Ms. Watson Coleman’s office said the congresswoman believes she was exposed to the coronavirus during protective isolation in the Capitol Wednesday while a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the grounds and temporarily halted the certification of the Electoral College vote for President-elect Joseph R. Biden.

“As reported by multiple news outlets, a number of members within the space ignored instructions to wear masks,” the press release stated, adding that Ms. Watson Coleman had previously received the first dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID19 vaccine.
