New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has tested positive for COVID-19 just over a week after being spotted partying without a mask while vacationing in Miami for the new year, her office said Sunday.

“Representative Ocasio-Cortez has received a positive test result for COVID-19. She is experiencing symptoms and recovering at home,” the statement said.

“The Congresswoman received her booster shot this fall, and encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all CDC guidance.”

AOC’s positive test result comes just over a week after she enjoyed a trip to South Beach for drinks with her boyfriend and again spotted maskless at a packed Miami drag bar amid a record-high number of COVID-19 cases in New York City.

In a video posted by a reporter for the Sunshine State’s Conservative Voice on Sunday, she was seen waving to the large crowd of mostly unmasked drag bar-goers.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis taunted AOC in a press conference last week when he was asked about her trip.

“If I had a dollar for every lockdown politician who decided to escape to Florida over the last two years, I’d be a pretty doggone wealthy man, let me tell ya,” said DeSantis.
