NEW YORK — Representative Nicole Malliotakis tested positive for COVID-19 Monday, a spokesperson for the official said Tuesday.

Her diagnosis comes amid a spike in infections across New York.

Rep. Malliotakis, who is fully vaccinated, received a test after experiencing mild symptoms and a slight fever, according to Communications Director Natalia Baldassarre.

“She has been quarantining at home and is feeling well, which she attributes to having been vaccinated,” Baldassarre said in a statement. “Our office has already communicated to the governor’s office and FEMA that Staten Island and Brooklyn would benefit from additional sites to cut down on wait times. The congresswoman continues to urge individuals to get tested prior to traveling or visiting loved ones this Christmas.”
