The vaccinated and boosted White House press secretary has come down with a case of COVID and she does have symptoms:
FOX NEWS – White House press secretary Jen Psaki said she tested positive for COVID-19 Tuesday, missing her press conference and side-lining her for President Joe Biden’s upcoming travel plans.
Psaki said the positive test will again force her to miss a trip to Europe, this time to a series of emergency meetings with world leaders regarding the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. Biden is scheduled to depart for Belgium and Poland Wednesday morning.
“Today, in preparation for travel to Europe, I took a PCR test this morning. That test came back positive, which means I will be adhering to CDC guidance and no longer be traveling on the President’s trip to Europe,” Psaki said in a written statement.
Biden, who had two socially distanced meetings with Psaki on Monday, tested negative Tuesday, according to government officials. Psaki previously tested positive in October 2021 before President Biden’s trip to Italy and Scotland, and returned to work after quarantining.
“Thanks to the vaccine, I have only experienced mild symptoms,” Psaki concluded, “In alignment with White House COVID-19 protocols, I will work from home and plan to return to work in person at the conclusion of a five-day isolation period and a negative test.”
What I don’t get is how she got it. If she’s masked, vaxxed and boosted, how did she come down with it?
I thought masking was the end all be all to keep covid away.
