Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID, the White House said Tuesday afternoon.
Harris, 57, who tested positive on rapid and PCR diagnostics, has not recently had close contact with President Biden, 79, due to their travel schedules, said Kirsten Allen, the vice president’s press secretary.
Harris will quarantine and work from home, Allen said.
“She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians,” Allen said in a statement. “The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”
Biden is fully vaccinated and has received two booster shots. He has not had a COVID diagnosis during the pandemic.
