Kamala Harris Is Headed Back To Work

(PresidentialWire.com)- Vice President Kamala Harris is slated to return to work on Tuesday after testing negative for COVID-19 a week after first testing positive for the virus. Harris was the first vice president to test positive for the virus, another historic first she can add to her resume.
Harris’ office announced on Monday that the Vice President’s quick antigen test resulted in a negative result for COVID-19, adding that she will return to work in person the next day if necessary.
Harris’ office stated that she would continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention standards, which encourage individuals to wear a well-fitting mask while in close proximity to others for ten days.
Her testing was performed after a week-long journey around California, during which the vice president came up positive for coronavirus on Tuesday. In recent months, Harris has been exposed to the virus on a number of occasions — whether at the Cabinet, in her office, or at her residence in the White House.
The White House announced last week that Harris has been completely vaccinated and triple boosted and that she has not been proven to be in close contact with President Biden or First Lady Jill.
Harris was not experiencing any symptoms at the time of her positive test result; instead, she was isolated and working from the Vice President’s mansion.
Someone who was within 6 feet of someone who tested positive for COVID for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period is considered a close contact by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Only a few days after Harris tested positive for COVID-19, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said that she had also caught the virus and was suffering minimal symptoms of the illness.
Despite being vaxxed and boosted, many luminaries contracted Covid following this year’s annual White House Correspondents Dinner.
According to Mark Leibovich, a reporter for The Atlantic who attended the dinner, it was expected that several attendees would test positive after the event. Earlier in the day, he stated that he had tested negative for the virus the previous evening.
Mr. Leibovich described the event as having “a kind of cruise ship atmosphere.” He went on to say that once attendees entered the ballroom, they would be unable to “escape” from the throngs.
Jada Yuan, a writer for The Washington Post who tested positive for Covid on Wednesday after attending the event, had described the ballroom as “like something out of a horror story” at the time.
She tweeted that there were “no exits” and was “literally getting trapped between tables.”
“Fear of breathing near people but people are everywhere. Creeping sense that you’re the only one who knows this is insane,” she wrote.
It should be noted that she was free to leave at any time. She was not “locked down” inside the swanky ballroom.
