On Sunday, Jen Psaki announced that even though she had been fully vaccinated, she tested positive for C-19.
According to her statement, she’s experiencing mild symptoms. On Wednesday, she went on leave once her family member tested positive. At that time, she tested negative until Sunday.

Her last contact with Biden was on Tuesday, and both of them were wearing masks outdoors and held distance.
At this moment, Biden is in Europe for the G20 meeting and climate summit.
This is Psaki’s statement:
On Wednesday, in coordination with senior leadership at the White House and the medical team, I made the decision not to travel on the foreign trip with the President due to a family emergency, which was members of my household testing positive for COVID-19. Since then, I have quarantined and tested negative (via PCR) for COVID on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. However, today, I tested positive for COVID. While I have not had close contact in person with the President or senior members of the White House staff since Wednesday — and tested negative for four days after that last contact — I am disclosing today’s positive test out of an abundance of transparency. I last saw the President on Tuesday, when we sat outside more than six-feet apart, and wore masks.
Thanks to the vaccine, I have only experienced mild symptoms which has enabled me to continue working from home. I will plan to return to work in person at the conclusion of the ten day quarantine following a negative rapid test, which is an additional White House requirement, beyond CDC guidance, taken out of an abundance of caution.
The announcement was via Twitter, and she added, “Sharing full statement and grateful I am vaccinated and for the amazing Biden team.”
