Kirsten Allen, US Vice President Kamala Harris’ spokesperson, said that the vice president will return to in-person work after testing negative for COVID-19 on Monday.
Harris holds a tie-breaking vote in the Senate and will return to work in person starting Tuesday.
Doug Emhoff, Harris’ husband, 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.”
Under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, Harris will continue to wear a mask for ten days following a negative rapid antigen test, 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.
