South Carolina U.S. House Rep. Nancy Mace will work from home in Charleston after she reported a breakthrough COVID-19 case, marking the second time the Lowcountry congresswoman has tested positive for coronavirus.

The Daniel Island Republican said she tested for coronavirus after one of her children tested positive.

Mace, who has been fully vaccinated since last spring, has now tested positive for COVID-19 twice, after the first time on June 23, 2020.

“I’m feeling OK. This is more mild than the first time. I’m completing quarantine and working from home as I recover,” Mace said in an official statement. “We are all frustrated with our common enemy COVID-19. I am praying everyone can stay healthy and we can all get past this soon.”

Mace is at least the second House member from South Carolina to report a breakthrough case, and she is among a growing list of members of Congress who have tested positive for COVID-19 and who are vaccinated.
