Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) has tested positive for a COVID-19 breakthrough infection after defying the House of Representative’s mask mandate and filing a lawsuit against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) over a resulting $500 fine for going maskless.

On Thursday, Norman tweeted, “After experiencing minor symptoms this morning, I sought a COVID-19 test and was just informed the test results were positive. Thankfully, I have been fully vaccinated and my symptoms remain mild.” He added that he will work virtually while he is in “quarantine” for 10 days. (“Quarantine” refers to restrictions for people who might be sick. Those who are known to be infected should go into “isolation.”)

Just last week, Norman, along with Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), filed a lawsuit against Pelosi, claiming the $500 fines they each faced for not wearing masks on the House floor in May were unconstitutional. The trio had appealed the fines in June, but on July 20, the US House Ethics Committee announced that their appeals had failed.
