VP Harris met with Texas Democrats who tested positive for coronavirus, and her office said she would not quarantine herself.
The VP’s Cheif Spokesperson Symone Sanders stated, ” it was determined the Vice President and her staff present at the meeting were not a risk of exposure because they were no in close contact with those who tested positive and therefore did not need to be tested or quarantined.”
The meeting was held at the American Federations of Teachers building near the Capitol Building.
The Texas Democrats fled to protest election security laws; VP Harris met with them on Tuesday; later, two of them tested positive for the virus.
“Defending the right of the American people to vote is American as apple pie,” she said to applause.
Even though they were fully vaccinated, three of the Democrat members received positive covid test results; the Texas State House Democratic Caucus confirmed after the trip Saturday.
The Texas Democrats were photographed not wearing masks while in a private jet en route to Washington, D.C., to bring attention to their protest.
The Vice President and her team appear not to be concerned about spreading the virus due to the event.
“The Vice President and her staff are fully vaccinated,” Sanders said in her statement.
Harris went on with her scheduled activities after being indoors with the Democrats, who later tested positive for the virus.
On Wednesday, she appeared next to President Biden and again on Thursday as they welcomed German Chancellor Angela Merkel to the White House.
The White House has not responded to questions from Breitbart News regarding whether precautionary tests had been performed on President Biden.
