Hillary Clinton has tested positive for COVID-19, she tweeted Tuesday. The 74-year-old former secretary of state said that she is experiencing “some mild cold symptoms” but said she is “feeling fine.”
“I’m more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness,” Clinton added. “Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already!”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 on Tuesday (March 22), and won’t travel with President Joe Biden on his upcoming trip to Europe, she said.
Biden tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 after taking a PCR test on Tuesday, according to Psaki, who said she and the president had two “socially distanced meetings” on Monday (March 21).
Psaki, who had taken a PCR test in preparation for Biden’s trip, said she currently has only mild symptoms, which she credited to having been triple-vaccinated against COVID-19.
She also said she will be working from home in compliance with White House COVID-19 protocols.
Psaki previously tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 in late October. As a result, she did not travel with Biden on a week-long trip to Italy and Scotland, as she had originally planned at the time.
