Today I tested positive for COVID. I tested negative before attending the Pride celebration at the White House last Wednesday. I started to feel cold-like symptoms last night. I am grateful for the protection of my vaccination and both boosters.— Becca Balint for Congress (@BeccaBalintVT) June 20, 2022
