After testing positive for the virus last fall‚ Jen Psaki has tested positive again for COVID-19. As of Thursday afternoon‚ she will no longer accompany Vice President Joe Biden to Belgium for a series of meetings about Russia's war in Ukraine. The two men will visit Poland‚ which shares a border with Ukraine and has taken in millions of Ukrainian refugees. Although the symptoms have been mild‚ Psaki will now work from home during the five-day quarantine period. She will return to work after the five-day isolation period and a negative test‚ which she has undergone several times. In a tweet‚ Psaki revealed that she had been tested and had been diagnosed with COVID-19. She was scheduled to travel to Poland and Brussels with President Biden later this week‚ but will now work from home. She has been quarantined for 12 days and will be able to go back to work once she tests negative. Her condition has been stable enough that she will be able to resume work after the five-day quarantine. After the positive test‚ Psaki did not attend a press briefing on Tuesday. However‚ her absence caused the President to cancel his European trip‚ as she was ill with the disease. As a result‚ she won't be able to travel with him. The White House is also preparing for his trip to Europe with Vice President Joe Biden‚ but Psaki will not be traveling with him. In the meantime‚ the President will attend a series of meetings in Poland and Belgium‚ which share a border with Ukraine. During that time‚ President Biden is expected to meet with the leaders of these countries. The United States is now back in prepandemic norms and President Biden will press his allies to impose additional sanctions against Russia. This is a sign that Psaki's illness is a result of the CDC's efforts to reduce the spread of the virus. President Joe Biden's trip to Europe is still on hold. The White House press secretary was unable to attend the meetings because of her COVID-19 infection. The president will also be accompanied by Vice President Joe Biden. After her positive test‚ she will not travel with him to Europe. She will continue working from home once she has recovered. If she tests negative again‚ she will return to the White House and rejoin the president. The White House has taken precautions to prevent its press secretary from becoming infected with the COVID-19 virus. Currently‚ the president is working to ease the outbreak by encouraging his cabinet members to use stronger sanctions against Russia.
This is a great way to show that the government is concerned about the virus's spread. So‚ while the president is trying to ease the country back into pre-pandemic norms‚ the media should make sure that all members of the administration are doing their part to prevent a pandemic. The White House press secretary is not alone in being infected. In addition to her husband‚ Vice President Kamala Harris' husband also tested positive on their trip. Both the president's wife‚ Senator Elizabeth Warren‚ and the prime minister of Ireland have also been infected recently. It is important to be careful when traveling with high-profile officials. If you feel sick‚ you may be at risk of contracting the illness. While Jen Psaki has been infected with COVID-19‚ she will be accompanied by President Biden to Europe. In fact‚ her last positive test for the COVID-19 virus occurred while the White House was preparing for international travel. The CDC also estimated that four out of 10 Americans had antibodies to COVID-19. In addition‚ the strain of the virus that she currently has a higher risk of reinfection than previous strains.
