Vice President Mike Pence is taking some precautions, but stopping short of the recommended self-quarantine in the wake of his press secretary testing positive for coronavirus.
Pence is “maintaining distance for the immediate future” from President Donald Trump after consulting with the White House medical unit, a senior administration official said. It is not yet clear exactly how long Pence will stay away from Trump.
Trump said Monday that he has not seen Pence since Miller tested positive on Friday, a fact that was underscored by the vice president’s absence from Trump’s news conference Monday. Trump said he could confer with the Pence by telephone.
