United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been checked into a Maryland hospital for a possible infection, according to a written statement from the US SCOTUS.

“Justice Ginsburg was admitted to The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland early this morning for treatment of a possible infection,” the statement read. “She was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. last night after experiencing fever and chills.”

Ginsberg reportedly underwent an endoscopic procedure at Johns Hopkins Tuesday afternoon to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed last August.

“The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment,” SCOTUS said.
