Bill Clinton Tests Positive for COVID

Former President Bill Clinton announced on Wednesday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Clinton, 76, said he has “mild symptoms, but I’m doing fine overall.”

The former president said he is vaccinated and boosted — and urged others to do the same.

“I’ve tested positive for Covid. I’ve had mild symptoms, but I’m doing fine overall and keeping myself busy at home,” Clinton wrote. “I’m grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, which has kept my case mild, and I urge everyone to do the same, especially as we move into the winter months.”

Former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tested positive for the virus in March.

“Well, I’ve tested positive for COVID. I’ve got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine,” Hillary Clinton tweeted at the time. “I’m more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness. Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already!”

“Bill tested negative and is feeling fine. He’s quarantining until our household is fully in the clear,” she added in a follow-up tweet.

The former president’s diagnosis comes as Hillary Clinton and their daughter Chelsea are scheduled to speak at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Arkansas. The duo is also set to host an international women’s rights summit in Little Rock that begins on Thursday. It is currently unclear if they will be quarantining or if the appearances will go as planned.

Hillary Clinton had not publicly commented on her husband’s test results at the time of publishing.
