Pence to continue campaign despite positive staffers

United States Vice President Mike Pence intends to continue campaign events this week despite reports that several of his staffers have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Pence's spokesman Devin O’Malley said that the vice president has tested negative for COVID-19 and will continue his schedule "in consultation with the White House Medical Unit" and "in accordance with the CDC guidelines for essential personnel."

Earlier, Pence's chief of staff Marc Short tested positive for the virus, while the New York Times reported that a total of 5 people from the vice president's inner circle have also been diagnosed with COVID-19.
