There seems to be an outbreak of COVID inside the White House, Biden seemed to hint one was occurring during his December 21, 2021 speech.
“And because Omicron spreads so easily, we’ll see some fully vaccinated people get COVID, potentially in large numbers. There will be positive cases in every office, even here in the White House, among the unv- — among the vaccinated — among the vaccinated — from Omicron,” Biden said.
Outgoing chief spokesperson Symone Sanders told reporters that Vice President Kamala Harris fled DC to Los Angeles after she spent the day with an aid who has tested positive for COVID-19.
According to reports, the staffer was “fully vaccinated and boosted, tested negative earlier in the week and every day the prior week.”
On December 24, 2021, Harris tested negative for the virus.
That was the second report of an outbreak inside the White House during the week before Christmas. Just days before there were reports that Biden was in close contact with an aid who had been infected with COVID-19.
.@PressSec says Biden is asymptomatic after his close contact last week with a staffer who later tested positive for COVID-19.
“He’s asymptomatic. I spent several hours with him this morning and he is feeling great,” she said.
