Spox Denies Report Mike Pence Is Self-Quarantining

NBC News reports:

Vice President Mike Pence was putting “a little distance” between himself and others this weekend after a staffer tested positive for COVID-19, a senior administration official told NBC News.

The official said that Pence would take the advice of the White House medical unit and that he continues to test negative for the virus. The vice president chose not to attend a national security meeting Saturday, the official said, adding that there is “no restriction” on his activities.

Devin O’Malley, a spokesperson for Pence, said that Pence “is not in quarantine” and that he plans to be at the White House on Monday. The CDC recommends that people who recently had close contact with someone who came down with COVID-19 should stay at home for 14 days.
