On Tuesday, the Vice President tested positive for -19, highlighting the threat of the highly contagious virus even as the United States eases restrictions in a bid to regain pre-pandemic control.
Harris was diagnosed both on rapid and a PCR tests, and said she "has had no symptoms." Harris will stay at her residence but will continue to work remotely, but will only return to the White House once she tests negative for the virus.
Harris, 57, received her first dose of the Moderna vaccine weeks before she was promoted to the gym, as well as a second dosage on April 1. A high level of protection for severe illness and death from COVID-19, mainly from the most common and highly transmissible omicron variant.
Neither President or first lady Jill Biden, according to the White House, were considered a "close contact" of Harris in recent days.
