President Joe Biden came in close contact with a staff member who tested positive for COVID-19, the White House announced Monday.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the 79-year-old Biden, who is fully vaccinated and boosted, has so far tested negative after coming in contact with the staffer, who had not yet been identified, on Friday.
“On Monday morning, a mid-level staff member, who does not regularly have contact with the President, received a positive result for a COVID-19 test,” Psaki said. “Three days earlier, on Friday, that staff member had spent approximately 30 minutes in proximity to the President on Air Force One, on the way from Orange, South Carolina to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.”
The staff member is fully vaccinated and boosted, Psaki said, adding that this person was “tested negative prior to boarding Air Force One, as is required for everyone traveling with the President. This staff member did not begin to experience symptoms until Sunday, and was tested on Monday.”
