Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms, according to a statement posted Tuesday on her Twitter.

"Well, I've tested positive for COVID. I've got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine," Clinton wrote.

Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, has "tested negative and is feeling fine," she said.

"He's quarantining until our household is fully in the clear. Movie recommendations appreciated!" the former first lady said.

Clinton went on to stress the importance of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.

"I'm more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness. Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven't already!" she urged.

Clinton is not the only top Democrat to test positive for COVID on Tuesday. Earlier that day, White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced she had tested positive for COVID as well.
