Casten, 50, said he was "fortunate to only have mild symptoms," adding he previously received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine as well as a booster shot.
The 6th district congressman said he is in isolation and will follow required health protocols "to keep his family, staff and community safe."
A scientist and entrepreneur, Casten was first elected to Congress in 2018 and is serving his second term.
