Pence staffer tests positive for coronavirus

A staffer in Vice President Mike Pence’s office has tested positive for coronavirus, Pence’s spokeswoman announced on Friday.

“This evening we were notified that a member of the Office of the Vice President tested positive for the Coronavirus,” Katie Miller, Pence’s press secretary, said in a statement. “Neither President Trump nor Vice President Pence had close contact with the individual. Further contact tracing is being conducted in accordance with CDC guidelines.”

The staffer was not immediately identified on Friday evening. Pence has not been tested for the virus, and his office said there were no plans to test the vice president at this time.

The staffer adds to the growing list of White House and congressional personnel who have tested positive for the virus since the global outbreak reached heightened levels in the United States. President Donald Trump tested negative for the virus, his physician announced last Friday. Pence said earlier this week that he had not been tested.
