The positive coronavirus test comes shortly after the congresswoman was seen without a mask in a Miami bar, according to video that circulated on social media.

On Dec. 30, the National Review also reported that Ocasio-Cortez was spotted maskless in Miami while at a restaurant outdoors with her boyfriend.

Ocasio-Cortez's trip to Florida came during a time when her home state of New York saw a record surge in coronavirus cases due to the omicron variant's spread.

The congresswoman responded by criticizing Republicans for "projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet."

"It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women,& LGBT+ people in general. These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird," Ocasio-Cortez said.
