MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) — The chair of the Montgomery County Commissioners, Dr. Val Arkoosh, tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. In a statement, Arkoosh, who’s also running for the U.S. Senate, says she is vaccinated and her symptoms are mild.

“This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19 using an at-home test. Fortunately, my symptoms are extremely mild, which I attribute to receiving the J&J vaccine and a Moderna booster,” Arkoosh said in a statement.

Arkoosh is working remotely, and following CDC guidelines for isolation.

Montgomery County will hold a virtual COVID-19 press briefing on Wednesday.
