Rep. Alma Hernandez, a Democrat representing District 3 in Tucson, said she tested positive despite being fully vaccinated.
According to the details, an Arizona State Representative says she has tested positive for COVID-19 even after being vaccinated. In a statement released Wednesday night, Representative Alma Hernandez (D-Tucson, District 3) said she tested positive for the virus Wednesday.
Hernandez says she, “has taken COVID-19 very seriously and have worn my mask, washed my hands, and socially distanced.”
Hernandez says she was fully vaccinated 11 weeks ago but noted that getting the inoculation does not prevent the infection. She says she continued to take precautions such as wearing a mask, washing her hands and social distancing and urges everyone to do so until the pandemic passes.
Her brother, Democratic Rep. Daniel Hernandez, says he tested negative for the virus but will self-isolate for several days and then take another test.
