Vice President Kamala Harris Tests Positive for COVID
The former senator from California tested positive for COVID-19 via rapid and PCR tests on Tuesday.
Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted.

Harris, who received her second booster shot on April 1, doesn’t have any symptoms.
The vice president, 57, will isolate and work from home, Harris’ press secretary, Kristen Allen, said in a statement.
“She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules,” the statement said. “She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”
Harris traveled to California on April 18 and returned to Washington on Monday.
Harris tweeted, “I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted.”
Kamala Harris, who has gotten four covid shots so far, just tested positive for covid. She will be fine. Just like she would have been if she’d never gotten the four covid shots in the first place.
