White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Sunday she has tested positive for COVID-19.
“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,” Psaki said in a statement.
“Since then, I have quarantined and tested negative (via PCR) for COVID on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday,” she added. “However, today, I tested positive for COVID. While I have not had close contact in person with the President or senior members of the White House staff since Wednesday — and tested negative for four days after that last contact — I am disclosing today’s positive test out of an abundance of transparency.
“I last saw the President on Tuesday, when we sat outside more than six-feet apart, and wore masks,” Psaki added. “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.”
She is now finally returning.
The vaccine did not stop her from needing to be able to be away from work for 12 days.
Jen Psaki will be back for a presser today at 1:00 p.m. — 12 days after announcing she tested positive for the coronavirus
