Third Time’s A…Charm? 🤔 Sen. Durbin Battles COVID-19 Yet Again! 🦠
TL;DR: Illinois Senator Dick Durbin tests positive for COVID-19… again! 😱 This marks his third positive test in just a year. Gonna miss out on some critical work in D.C., but will continue the hustle from home. 🏡💼
While most of us groan at our alarm clocks for the third time in a week, Senator Dick Durbin is out here testing positive for COVID-19 for the third time in a year! Say what? 😲 Is this some kind of hat-trick we didn’t know about?
Late on a Sunday night, while most were probably diving into their latest Netflix binge or doom-scrolling Twitter, Durbin shared his health update. “Missing out on Senate’s NDAA work this week in Washington,” he tweeted. FOMO, much? 🤷♂️ But hey, priorities, right?
So what’s the game plan now? Durbin’s shifting gears to WFH mode (Work From Home, for the old souls out there), keeping up with the times. He’s cozying up at home, quarantining, and following doctor’s orders. 🩺👩⚕️ Honestly, sounds like a solid plan after a positive test.
Wondering about the senator’s previous tango with the virus? 🕺🦠 Round one was in late July 2022, where he faced only minor symptoms. Fast forward to March this year, and he was back at it with another positive test, with – you guessed it – minor symptoms. But, don’t freak out too much. He was fully vaxxed and boosted, which might explain the milder encounters.
Now, for some trivia to impress your friends at the next Zoom trivia night: Did you know Durbin has been ruling the Illinois Senate scene since 1997? That’s pre-Y2K, folks! And he clinched his fifth term in 2020. Talk about staying power! 💪

But here’s what I want to know, and maybe you’re wondering too: With all the precautions and vaccinations, how does someone test positive three times? 🧐
Question to Ponder: With breakthrough cases and variants making headlines, what does immunity truly look like in our ever-evolving world? 🌍💭
