“On Wednesday, in coordination with senior leadership at the White House and the medical team, I made the decision not to travel on the foreign trip with the President due to a family emergency, which was members of my household testing positive for COVID-19,” she said in the statement. “Since then, I have quarantined and tested negative (via PCR) for COVID on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. However, today [Sunday], I tested positive for COVID.”

She then revealed the last time she was with the President, and indicated that they were thankfully as COVID safe as possible during that time.

“I last saw the President on Tuesday, when we sat outside more than six-feet apart, and wore masks,” she said. “Thanks to the vaccine, I have only experienced mild symptoms which has enabled me to continue working from home.. I will plan to return to work in person at the conclusion of the ten day quarantine following a negative rapid test, which is an additional White House requirement, beyond CDC guidance, taken out of an abundance of caution.”

Thankfully, the President is also vaccinated and has received the booster as of late September.

We’re sending the Press Secretary all the best and hoping for a quick recovery!
