According to her spokesperson Kirsten Allen, US Vice President Kamala Harris will return to face-to-face work following a negative COVID-19 test on Monday.
Harris, who wields a tie-breaking vote in the Senate, will work in person starting Tuesday.
Harris’ husband, Doug Emhoff, told reporters that Harris is feeling fine.
“She’s doing great,” he said on the sidelines of a White House reception marking the Eid al-Fitr holiday. “She worked the entire time.”
Harris will continue to wear a mask through the ten days following a negative rapid antigen test under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, spokesperson Allen wrote in a statement.
The White House announced Harris’ positive result last Tuesday.
In recent weeks, Senate Democrats have had to delay efforts to advance President Joe Biden’s nominees for the Federal Reserve and Federal Trade Commission.
Including Harris and three Democratic senators, recent COVID cases threatened further delays. The Senate is split evenly between members aligned with Democrats and Republicans.
