The Vice President of the US, Mike Pence, is not in quarantine and has tested negative to Covid-19 after a close aide was confirmed to have been infected, his spokesman said yesterday.

Pence will go to work at the White House today, spokesman Devin O’Malley said in a statement following some US media reports that Pence would be self-isolating.

“Vice President Pence will continue to follow the advice of the White House Medical Unit and is not in quarantine,” O’Malley said.

“Vice President Pence has tested negative every single day and plans to be at the White House tomorrow.”
