Vice President Kamala Harris tests positive for COVID, has no symptoms; Joe Biden not ‘close contact’


WASHINGTON — Vice President Kamala Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, according to a statement from her press secretary.

She “has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence,” according to the statement.

President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden have not been in close contact with Harris due to their recent travel schedules, the statement read.

A White House official said Harris did not attend Tuesday’s presidential daily briefing in person. She will return to the White House once she tests negative, according to her press secretary.

Harris received her second COVID-19 booster shot on April 1.
