On the morning before his planned travel to Egypt for the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27), Senator Carper announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
As a result, Senator Carper will no longer attend COP27, and will instead isolate and quarantine in accordance with public health guidelines.
