“To everyone who has asked, I have recovered fully from my bout with COVID-19, and I have a clean bill of health. I am looking forward to resuming my travel in the state this week,” said Wicker. “I encourage all who have not yet received a COVID vaccine to talk to their doctor. Being fully vaccinated greatly reduced my risk of developing severe complications from the virus. Getting the shot is safe, easy, and free, and it could save your life.
