Emhoff tests positive for COVID-19, VP Harris is still negative – NBC4 Washington

Second gentleman Doug Emhoff has tested positive for COVID-19, the White House announced Tuesday. Vice President Kamala Harris tested negative, but narrows her schedule as a result of her husband’s positive test.

Harris spokeswoman Sabrina Singh said Harris would not attend a scheduled Equal Pay Day event Tuesday night in the White House with President Joe Biden “out of an abundance of caution.”

“The vice president tested negative for COVID-19 today and will continue to test,” she said.

Biden and Harris appeared together Tuesday afternoon, mingling with lawmakers at an event marking the signing of a $ 1.5 trillion state aid.

Before Emhoff’s diagnosis was made public, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Biden had tested negative for COVID-19 on Sunday.
