The Texas Tribune reports:
Texas AG Ken Paxton has tested positive for COVID-19, his office said Wednesday. The communications staff at the attorney general’s office told The Texas Tribune in an unsigned statement that Paxton had tested positive.
“He remains working diligently for the people of Texas from home,” the statement said. The attorney general’s office did not immediately say whether Paxton was vaccinated. It did not release further information on when Paxton tested positive or how he may have contracted it.
Paxton, a second-term Republican, has challenged attempts by President Joe Biden to mandate vaccines for health care employees at facilities that receive funding from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and troops serving in the Texas National Guard.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
