Top Health Officials Self-Isolate After COVID Hits WH

The Washington Post reports:

Three of the country’s highest ranking health officials are self-quarantining after two White House aides tested positive for the novel coronavirus, hobbling the administration’s pandemic task force as President Trump pushes to restart the economy.

Anthony S. Fauci, the government’s top infectious diseases official, will work partially from home and take other precautions after a “low risk” exposure, a spokeswoman for Fauci said late Saturday night.

Robert Redfield, director of the CDC, will telework for the next two weeks, according to a spokesperson. FDA commissioner Stephen Hahn will also quarantine for two weeks, the FDA said. At the same time, other White House staffers who may have been exposed have been encouraged to return to work.
