White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield Tests Positive For Covid-19


White House communications director Kate Bedingfield has tested positive for Covid-19, becoming the latest high-level Biden official to test positive for the virus. President Joe Biden, she said in a statement, is not a close contact.

“This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19. I last saw the President Wednesday in a socially-distanced meeting while wearing an N-95 mask, and he is not considered a close contact as defined by the CDC,” she said in a tweet.

Bedingfield said she is experiencing mild symptoms and is “fully vaccinated and boosted,” in a subsequent tweet, adding that she would work from home and return to in-person work after a five-day isolation period and negative test.

The news comes the same week Vice President Kamala Harris tested positive for Covid-19.
