MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19.
Flanagan announced Saturday that she received the positive test after caring for her 8-year-old daughter Siobhan, who tested positive on Oct. 22.
The lieutenant governor received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine last spring.
Flanagan said she and her husband, Tom, had been staying home for the past week to care for their daughter and avoid exposing others to the virus. \
Flanagan’s brother Ron, who was in his 50’s and battling cancer, died of COVID in 2020.
