Vice President Kamala Harris is visiting Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Sunday for a routine medical appointment, a White House official told NBC News.
There is currently no evidence that the appointment is related to the vice president’s meeting last week with Texas Democratic lawmakers, some of which have since tested positive for Covid-19.
Symone Sanders, senior advisor and main spokesperson for Harris, said Saturday that the vice president and her staff were not at risk of exposure to the virus at the meeting.
Based on the schedule of positive Covid-19 tests, it was determined that Harris and her staff “were not at risk of exposure because they were not in close contact with those who tested positive and therefore do not need to be tested or quarantined. Said Sanders. “The Vice President and her staff are fully vaccinated.”
