Triple-Vaccinated CIA Director Gets COVID-19 After Meeting With Biden
CIA Director William Burns, 65, has tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 from a routine PCR test, the agency announced on Thursday (March 31).
Burns, who is tripled-vaccinated against COVID-19, last saw President Biden Wednesday (March 30) morning “in a socially distanced meeting, and was wearing an N-95 mask. Their interaction is not considered close contact as defined by CDC guidance, and Director Burns is sharing the news of his positive test out of an abundance of transparency,” the CIA said in a news release.
Burns’ positive test follows two other COVID-19 cases within Biden’s orbit.
The intelligence agency said Burns has experienced mild symptoms and will continue to perform his duties as CIA director from home.
