Vice President Kamala Harris left Washington, D.C. on Wednesday night to go to Los Angeles for the holidays after she was exposed to the coronavirus by close contact with a staffer on Tuesday who then tested positive on Wednesday.
Harris tested negative for the virus on Wednesday with both a PCR and antigen test, but she could still get infected with the virus at any point over the next several days.
Because she is fully vaccinated, she isn’t required to quarantine per the CDC.
“She will be tested again on Friday then again on Monday per CDC guidance,” spokesperson Simone Sanders wrote.
Harris will end what has become a very bad year for her and President Joe Biden, whose approval ratings have cratered as their policies have resulted in high inflation and hundreds of Americans left behind in Afghanistan.
