SCOTUS confirmation to go on as scheduled - report

The confirmation process of judge Amy Coney Barrett for the vacant United States Supreme Court will continue as scheduled, the Axios reported on Friday, citing multiple Senate GOP aides. The process was called into question after US President Donald Trump tested positive for coronavirus.

Barrett tested negative, according to White House spokesman Judd Deere. "She is following CDC guidance and best practices, including social distancing, wearing face coverings, and frequently washes hands," Deere said, adding that she is tested daily.
