President-elect Joe Biden isn’t even in office yet, and one member of his press pool has already been sent into quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19, stoking worries about Biden potentially being infected.
The press pool member wasn’t in close contact with Biden, though that person traveled with Biden on Tuesday.
Here’s the full statement from the Biden campaign:
“Today, a member of the press pool who traveled with the President-elect yesterday received a positive PCR test for Covid-19. We initiated contact tracing protocols immediately, and this person was not ever in close contact as defined by the CDC with the President¬ elect. He also adhered to masking and social distancing guidelines at all times during the trip.
“Out of an abundance of caution, one member of our traveling communications team who was in close contact with this individual will self¬ quarantine for 7 days and other members of the traveling press pool who were in close contact with this individual are not on pool duty today and will not be until they clear the window for being infectious. No other member of the President-elect’s staff has been assessed to be at risk for exposure or transmission of the virus.”
So, how much longer until the MSM starts complaining about the Biden campaign’s blatant disregard for reporters’ safety?
