“This evening we were notified that a member of the Office of the Vice President tested positive for the Coronavirus,” Katie Miller, Pence’s press secretary, said in a statement. “Neither President Trump nor Vice President Pence had close contact with the individual.”
Pence’s office did not identify the individual. But the Pence spokeswoman said steps are being made to trace others the person has come in contact with.
“Further contact tracing is being conducted in accordance with CDC guidelines,” Miller said.
