Psaki from the White House tests positive for COVID-19

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, becoming the highest-ranking White House official to disclose that she had the virus publicly.

"While I have not had close personal contact with the President or senior White House staff since Wednesday — and tested negative for four days after this last contact — I am disclosing today's positive test through an abundance of transparency," he said in a statement. "I last saw the president on Tuesday, when we sat outside more than six feet away, and we put on masks."

Psaki said in a statement that Psaki chose not to travel with President Biden and other staff members to Europe on Thursday after a member of her family tested positive for the virus. She held another press conference with reporters on Wednesday at the White House.

Psaki said she has been vaccinated and has mild symptoms. You will return to work after ten days of quarantine after a negative test.

The press secretary usually interacts regularly with the president, which makes Psaki's positive test especially notable.

The president left for Europe on Thursday. He has since met with the Pope and G20 leaders in Rome. He is scheduled to attend the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow on Monday and Tuesday before returning to Washington, DC.

The White House has refused to disclose cases of COVID-19 hacks within its ranks unless the individual chooses to advertise themselves or has been in direct contact with the president.

Other top administration officials who have revealed positive tests include Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mallorcas and State Department spokesman Ned Price, who have been vaccinated.
