Emma Davidson, a Greens member of the ACT Legislative Assembly, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Ms Davidson, who is a member for Murrumbidgee and the Minister for Disability, Justice Health and Mental Health, said on Friday afternoon she had tested positive for coronavirus.
"I feel fine with only mild symptoms and will continue isolating and working from home as I have done since last Saturday," Ms Davidson, who is fully vaccinated, said in a post on Twitter.
"Our amazing ACT health and pathology lab workers are doing the very best they can to test as many people as possible, but there's a limit to the resources we can access right now.
"Would help if Commonwealth would step up and help supply RATs for our disability workforce."
Ms Davidson, who is understood to be the first ACT parliamentarian to test positive for the virus, said her result on Friday came from a PCR test sample collected on Sunday.
