The 40-year-old Jacque was diagnosed with the virus earlier this month and has been hospitalized for at least a week. He claimed in an interview with the paper last week that he was “largely asymptomatic” and really only felt fatigued.

“In recent months, Jacque has been one of most outspoken lawmakers against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and has authored legislation that would bar government officials or business owners from requiring Wisconsinites be vaccinated against COVID-19 or show proof of vaccination to access services,” said the report.
His brother lashed out at another GOP lawmaker asking for prayers for Jacques.
