PA Congressman Glenn 'GT' Thompson tests positive for COVID-19 breakthrough case


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WJAC) — Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson has tested positive for a breakthrough COVID-19 case, according to a release.

A breakthrough case is when a fully vaccinated person contracts COVID-19.

Thompson reportedly started experiencing cold-like symptoms Friday and was quickly tested for COVID.

The release says he is being treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center out of an abundance of caution.

“He is in good spirits and further updates will be made available in the coming days,” the release says.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health says more breakthrough cases will occur as more people get vaccinated, but overall vaccinated people fare much better than unvaccinated.

Health officials said Monday that the number of COVID-19 cases over the past 30 days shows that 74 percent of the 135,098 people who tested positive were unvaccinated.
