Mike Pence Self-Isolates After Aide Gets COVID-19

Mike Pence Self-Isolates After Aide Gets COVID-19

"He has been tested for COVID-19 and the results of the test were negative".

The White House has ramped up testing from once weekly to daily for administration officials, including Trump and Pence, who White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said both tested negative for the novel coronavirus on Friday.

Pence has led the White House coronavirus task force for more than two months.

Vice President Mike Pence was putting "a little distance" between himself and others this weekend after a staffer tested positive for COVID-19, a senior administration official told NBC News.

Three members of the White House coronavirus task force, including Fauci, have placed themselves in quarantine after contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, another stark reminder that not even one of the nation's most secure buildings is immune from the virus. He, however, added that White House officials have been asked to step up safety protocols for the complex.

Reuters on Sunday said there were no plans to seperate President Donald Trump and Pence seperate despite concerns.

At the same time, he said some $9 trillion has been injected into the USA economy through actions taken by Congress, the White House and the Federal Reserve.

"I don't worry about things", the president said, adding, "We've taken very strong precautions at the White House".

The new move came in the wake of another source pointing that people who attended meetings in recent weeks were only "semi-spaced out" and did not observe the required distance between each other. "The President and the Vice President have since tested negative for the virus and they remain in great health".

The prime minister said that the government has a plan to ease lockdown, but "it is a conditional plan", and since "our priority is to protect the public and save lives, we can not move forward unless we satisfy the five tests". Trump continues to reject guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to wear a mask when meeting with groups of people. She is married to Stephen Miller, a top Trump adviser. This has brought the pandemic to within a degree of the center of power in the USA and made the White House an unexpected emerging hotspot even as large parts of America is now re-opening for business to very light footfall. The assistant, who works in a personal capacity for US President Donald Trump's daughter, has not been around her in several weeks, the CNN reported. "I'm doing well and look forward to getting back to work for the American people".

In addition, however, at least 11 members of the Secret Service staff tested positive for COVID-19.
