New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has reportedly tested positive for COVID, days after partying it up at a bar in Miami without a mask.

The triple-vaxxed, pro-mandate mask queen announced she’d tested positive in a press release from her office Sunday night.

According to the statement, AOC is having COVID symptoms and is quarantining at home. The announcement also encouraged others to get boosted, despite the fact that her own booster shot – on top of both regular vaccine doses – didn’t keep her from getting COVID and experiencing symptoms.

“Representative Ocasio-Cortez has received a positive test result for COVID-19,” the statement read. “She is experiencing symptoms and recovering at home. The Congresswoman received her booster shot this Fall, and encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all CDC guidance.”

AOC was widely mocked over the weekend after photos showed her living large in free Florida, where she ditched the face mask and enjoyed going out and about in crowds and dining with her boyfriend. The democratic socialist then blasted her right-leaning critics, accusing them of having “obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations” over her.

AOC marks the latest in a long line of so-called "breakthrough" COVID cases in Congress, including Sens. Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren, and Reps. Barbara Lee and Ayanna Pressley.
