Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is back in the hospital, a place she has been often over the last couple years.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was admitted to the hospital early Tuesday morning, the Supreme Court said. She is being treated for a possible infection.

“The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment,” said court spokesperson Kathleen Arberg in a statement Tuesday.  

Ginsburg was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., on Monday night after experiencing a fever and chills. She then underwent a endoscopic procedure at Johns Hopkins on Tuesday to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed in August 2019.

The 87-year-old justice has had several health issues over the past few years, including a hospitalization in May for acute cholecystitis, which was described as a “benign gallbladder condition.” She participated in oral arguments via teleconference.”
