The White House is considering new safety measures as a number of staffers have tested positive for the coronavirus. This, as Vice President Mike Pence will be keeping his distance others after press secretary Katie Miller is among those positive. There was some debate about Pence working remotely, but he's tested daily and his tests have come back negative.
Still, members of the White House coronavirus task force are now in quarantine after exposure to staffers who tested positive. Senate HELP Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander released a statement today saying Dr. Anthony Fauci and others will testify through videoconference during a hearing tomorrow.
Fauci, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield, and FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn are all now in quarantine after coming into contact with a person at the White House who has since become infected. On a related note, Alexander is now cooling his jets in self-quarantine as well.
