White House Domestic Policy Council Director Susan Rice has tested positive for Covid-19 — the latest case amid a string of top U.S. officials who have contracted the virus.
“This morning I tested positive for COVID-19. I’m feeling fine and grateful to be vaccinated and double boosted,” Rice tweeted on Monday afternoon.
Rice said in the tweet she last saw President Joe Biden in person on Wednesday while masked, and “and under CDC guidance he is not considered a close contact.”
Rice’s diagnosis comes just two weeks after Vice President Kamala Harris tested positive for Covid and five days after Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced he had contracted the virus.
Biden has so far apparently avoided Covid and was also not considered a close contact of Harris or Blinken by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention standards.
