Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh has tested positive for the coronavirus despite being vaccinated, the Supreme Court announced Friday. "He has no symptoms and has been fully vaccinated since January," the statement said. The court said that the other justices had tested negative as of last Monday and that Kavanaugh tested negative that day as well.

The court's new term starts Monday. It was not immediately clear how Kavanaugh's positive test might affect his participation.

Kavanaugh was seen in the Capitol late Thursday wearing a face mask and with his security detail. The Office of Attending Physician at the Capitol provides care to Supreme Court justices.

The court said that Kavanaugh's wife and daughters are also fully vaccinated, and that they tested negative on Thursday.

Hoping that neither Kavanaugh nor his family or coworkers are personally affected by his diagnosis, and that he doesn't suffer from a more pervasive infection.

Thankfully so far, all involved are reportedly vaccinated.

It would be a cruel irony if this guy died of Covid. What would Mitch McTurtle do then?

"if this guy died of Covid."

Not a chance.

No doubt he got monoclonal antibodies the first day, he's getting cutting-edge treatments as we speak, and they'll line up the menstrual blood of fifteen vestal virgins just in case....

One of the rare cases I feel sorry for the virus and am rooting for it.
