Civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. and his wife, Jacqueline Jackson, have been hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19, the Associated Press reported Saturday night.
“Doctors are currently monitoring the condition of both,” their son, Jonathan Jackson, said in a statement. “There are no further updates at this time. We will provide updates as they become available.”
Jackson is vaccinated against COVID-19, having received his first dose in January, per reports. He and his wife are being treated at Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
According to Chicago’s WGN9, his organization, Rainbow PUSH Coalition, urged people who have been in contact with them in the last five to six days to isolate and follow CDC guidelines.
