Unfortunately, this evening I tested positive for COVID-19. The good news is I am vaccinated and boosted, and my symptoms are very mild. I will be quarantining, and continuing to campaign from home until I am able to safely return to the trail. 1/— Comptroller Peter Franchot (@peterfranchot) July 1, 2022
