WASHINGTON Vice President Mike Pence plans to maintain an aggressive campaign schedule this week despite an apparent outbreak of the coronavirus among his senior aides, the White House says.
Pence's chief of staff, Marc Short, and a couple of key staff surrounding the vice president have tested positive for the virus, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Sunday.
The vice president, who along with his wife, Karen, tested negative on Sunday, according to his office, is considered a close contact of the aides under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria but will not quarantine, his spokesman said.
Devin OMalley said Pence decided to maintain his travel schedule in consultation with the White House Medical Unit" and "in accordance with the CDC guidelines for essential personnel. Those guidelines require that essential workers exposed to someone with the coronavirus closely monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and wear a mask whenever around other people.
OMalley said Pence and his wife, Karen, both tested negative on Saturday and remain in good health.

He is on with Levin? Is it on now - 9 PM ET?
started at 8PM but you can find it on Youtube...
Ok, great, thanks!
We saw him in Tallahassee last night. He made it a point to say he would be there “in my seat” for her confirmation.
Repeats again 11pm Eeastern.
Pence has been an excellent VP, taking on more than any VP in history. He seems to excel behind the scenes but has certainly steeped up in the last few months.
I think Pence can pick the job he desires under Pompeo.
oh - good - will watch it then! Thank you.
Question, could a person be the Veep for 4 terms? Not saying pence would want too. Just curious.
There are no term limits on Vice Presidents.
Don't think Pence would want it. He'll have his pick of positions though.
At least he wasnt re-elected as a governor. Id be good with him as VP for life. Maybe the Supreme Court can get on it.
Did the staff recently get a flu shot?
And what if the President and Vice President just ignored all that scary talk ?
The Dems want to keep Pence out of the Senate for the final vote on ACB’s confirmation. They are saying he is a COVID risk and it is irresponsible for him to be around them. It is obvious they are exploiting COVID for every political advantage they can get.
