We here at Bayou Beat News definitely send our well wishes for a speedy recovery to our own beloved Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who has tested positive for COVID-19.

The congresswoman has been one of the most fierce figures in the forefront of the battle against the virus as the pandemic swept across the world.

When the pandemic struck, she was one of Houston’s most visible leaders, organizing food drives, COVID testing sites and vaccination centers, and making sure residents were provided with whatever resources they needed to stay afloat during these trying times.

But if anyone knows our congresswoman, she is definitely not going to let anything stop her from leading and winning.


Jackson Lee has assured everyone that she is fully vaccinated and has received booster shots, and is encouraging everyone to get their vaccinations and boosters as well.

Her office released a statement that she is “looking forward to a full and complete recovery.”
