On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) office announced that she had tested positive for COVID-19. The announcement came the day after Pelosi attended an event at the White House with President Biden.

“After testing negative this week, Speaker Pelosi received a positive test result for COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic,” Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, tweeted. “The Speaker is fully vaccinated and boosted, and is thankful for the robust protection the vaccine has provided.”

“The Speaker will quarantine consistent with CDC guidance, and encourages everyone to get vaccinated, boosted and test regularly,” Hammill continued, later adding, “A planned Congressional delegation to Asia, led by @SpeakerPelosi , will be postponed to a later date.”

Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrichs responded to the news, noting, “Pelosi was on stage, unmasked with POTUS yesterday at the postal service reform act bill signing – inches away from him.”

Multiple other Democrats have tested positive for COVID-19 after attending the event, as noted by Axios.

“Attorney General Merrick Garland and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday, days after they attended the Gridiron Club dinner, a high-profile D.C. media event,” Axios reported. “Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Joaquín Castro (D-Texas) also tested positive after attending the dinner on Saturday.”
