Spokesperson to the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed on Tuesday that a staff member of Speaker’s team has tested positive for Covid-19 despite being fully vaccinated.
“Yesterday, a fully vaccinated senior spokesperson in the speaker’s press office tested positive for COVID after contact with members of the Texas state legislature last week,” Drew Hammill said to Fox News.
“This individual has had no contact with the speaker since exposure. The entire press office is working remotely today with the exception of individuals who have had no exposure to the individual or have had a recent negative test. Our office will continue to follow the guidance of the Office of Attending Physician closely.”
