Emhoff tests positive for COVID-19, VP Harris still negative

WASHINGTON — Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff has tested positive for COVID-19, the White House announced Tuesday. Vice President Kamala Harris has tested negative, but is cutting back on her schedule following her husband’s positive test.

Harris spokeswoman Sabrina Singh said Harris would not attend a scheduled Equal Pay Day event Tuesday night at the White House with President Joe Biden “out of an abundance of caution.”

“The Vice President tested negative for COVID-19 today and will continue to test,” she said.

Biden and Harris appeared together Tuesday afternoon and mingled with lawmakers at an event marking the signing of a $1.5 trillion government funding package.

Before Emhoff’s diagnosis was made public, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden tested negative for COVID-19 on Sunday.
