“Yesterday I tested positive for COVID-19. I will be responsible and quarantined, away from my family, for the recommended time,” Korea wrote on Twitter.
He said the diagnosis would miss the inauguration of Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday.
“Although I will miss the long-awaited inauguration of President-elect @JoeBiden, I look forward to working with the new administrator to unite our country!” He said.
CNN contacted Correa’s office for further details.
Korea is among several dozen members of the House and senators who have contracted the virus in recent months as the Covid-1
9 pandemic rages across the country.
Three Democrats said earlier this week that they had tested positive for Covid-19 after taking refuge with other members of Congress who were not wearing masks during the Capitol violent attack on Jan. 6.
CNN reported earlier this week that Correa was visited by supporters of President Donald Trump at Dulles International Airport after the pro-Trump uprising in the Capitol.
