Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has tested positive for COVID-19.

His campaign released a statement Sunday morning that Patrick tested positive the day before and says that he is experiencing only mild symptoms. 

He had previously experienced mild COVID-19 symptoms in January.

Patrick is isolating at home and following appropriate protocols, according to his campaign, and will be working from home this week.

Patrick is fully vaccinated and received a booster last fall.
