U.S. Senator Rob Portman said on Tuesday he has tested positive for COVID-19.

A statement emailed this morning said the Republican took an at-home test before returning to Washington D.C. Portman said he's asymptomatic and feeling fine.

Portman also said he will work remotely this week before returning to the nation's capital.

Portman, who announced last year he would not run for re-election this year, participated in a clinical trial for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine starting in November 2020.
