Psaki said “no additional precautions” were being taken to separate Harris from President Biden following her meeting with the lawmakers. “What’s important for everybody to know is that the vice president was tested,” she added. “She, of course, takes these precautions seriously and we would follow any advice our public health officials give us.” Harris went to Walter Reed Medical Center on Sunday for what her office described as a routine doctor’s appointment. Officials said Harris was not in close contact with the infected lawmakers and would not need to quarantine.

“I don’t think I’m going to be in a position here to assess what safety precautions they may or may not have taken. Obviously, these individuals were out there trying to elevate the issue of an individual’s right to vote,” Psaki said. Five of the Texas House Democrats who traveled to Washington D.C. have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent days. Harris met with the Texas lawmakers last Tuesday.
