SALEM, Ore. (KPTV) - Oregon Senator Ron Wyden has tested positive for COVID-19, his office announced Tuesday.

Wyden received a positive test following routine testing.

“He is fully vaccinated and experiencing minor symptoms. He is in Washington, D.C. and working from his residence while following CDC guidance to quarantine,” his office said in a statement.
