U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris

Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID.

Harris and First Gentleman Doug Emhoff returned this week from traveling across the country. They attended a fundraiser hosted by Walt Disney Television’s Dana Walden and producer Matt Walden. Held at Walden’s home, officials said about thirty people attended.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Harris’ press secretary Kirsten Allen. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate, and continue to work from the Vice President’s Residence. She has not been in close contact with President Biden or the first lady due to their respective recent travel schedules.”

Allen said Harris and her husband would follow guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The couple also plans to follow the advice of their doctors, Allen stated.

Vice President Harris is fully vaccinated and boosted. Harris completed her two-dose regiment of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in January of last year and has received two boosters. The first was in late October and the second just a few weeks ago on April 1.

“The vice president will return to the White House when she tests negative,” she said.
