Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen was treated for a urinary tract infection over the weekend, the Federal Reserve said Monday.

She was admitted to King Edward VII hospital in London Friday and released Monday. She is returning to Washington, D.C., the Fed said, and expects to resume her schedule as planned this week.

Yellen was vacationing with her family in London after attending an event Tuesday, June 27.

"The appropriate stance of policy now is closer to, let me call it neutral," Yellen said. She expects the economy to continue to grow at a moderate pace and that gradual interest-rate increases "can get us where we need to be."
