U.S. Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX 12th District), of Fort Worth, has tested positive for COVID-19, her office confirms.

Granger's office said she tested positive after being tested in accordance with the Attending Physician’s guidance for members of Congress returning to Washington D.C. from their home state.

Granger, 77, who received the first of two vaccine shots last month, said through her office that she is "asymptomatic and feeling great!"

It is not clear how or when Granger contracted the virus.

Granger, a high-ranking member of the Texas delegation and a member of the House Appropriations Committee, was on the floor at the U.S. House on Sunday during swearing-in proceedings and the reelection of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
