Hogan then encouraged others to get the vaccine in light of the growing spread of omicron. "As the Omicron variant becomes dominant, I want to urge you to get vaccinated or get your booster shot as soon as possible."
Hogan is not the only politician to confirm a positive COVID-19 test this weekend. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, as well as Rep. Jason Crow, all confirmed that they have tested positive for COVID-19 and encouraged followers to get vaccinations and booster shots.
Hogan received the first two doses of the Moderna vaccine in January and a booster in August, reports WTOP News.
