WASHINGTON, May 2 – U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris will return to work in person after discovering he did not have COVID-19 on Monday, according to a spokesman.
Harris, who has a divisive vote in the Senate, plans to work in person from Tuesday.
Doug Emhoff, Harris’ husband, told reporters that the vice president was feeling well.
“She did well,” he said next to a White House reception to mark the Islamic holiday Eid al-Fitr. “You’ve worked all the time.”
She will continue to wear the mask over a period of 10 days following a rapid antigen screening test, under the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, spokeswoman Kirsten Allen said in a statement.
The White House announced a positive outcome for Harris last Tuesday.
The Senate Democrats have had to delay efforts to advance President Joe Biden’s nominations for the Federal Reserve and the Federal Trade Commission in recent weeks.
The latest COVID cases, involving Harris and three senators from the Democratic Alliance, have threatened further delays. The Senate is equally divided between Democrats and Republicans.
