U.S. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday.

"I feel fine and am grateful to be fully vaccinated and twice boosted," Haaland tweeted.

"I hope everyone stays current on their vaccinations so that, if they are exposed, they too will have milder symptoms," she added.

Haaland, 61, has served as head of the U.S. Department of the Interior since March 2021.

The United States has reported more than 84 million COVID-19 cases and over 1 million related deaths since the breakout of the pandemic in the nation more than two years ago, according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University.
