Multiple White House officials have tested positive for COVID-19, including at least one case that the White House did not publicly disclose, and an aide in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office also tested positive for the coronavirus after the individual met with Texas Democrats who fled the state last week in a desperate attempt to stop bills from passing in the state legislature. The news comes as yet another Texas Democrat tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the total number of Texas Democrats who have tested positive to six, which is more than 10% of the 58 Texas Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C., last week. “Yesterday, a fully vaccinated senior spokesperson in the Speaker’s press office tested positive for COVID after contact with members of the Texas state legislature last week,” said Drew Hammill, deputy chief of staff to Pelosi. “The entire press office is working remotely today with the exception of individuals who have had no exposure to the individual or have had a recent negative test. Our office will continue to follow the guidance of the Office of Attending Physician closely.”
