In her statement on Tuesday, Psaki – who missed an earlier trip by the president to Europe after testing positive for Covid-19 last October – said she had two “socially distanced meetings” with Biden on Monday and that he ” is not considered a close contact for purposes of CDC guidelines.”

Biden tested negative for Covid-19 on Tuesday, Psaki said, and she decided to share the news of her own positive test result “out of a wealth of transparency.”

“Thanks to the vaccine, I had only mild symptoms,” Psaki said. “In accordance with White House COVID-19 protocols, I will be working from home and returning to work in person after a five-day isolation period and a negative test.”

At Tuesday’s previously scheduled White House press briefing, Deputy White House Press Secretary Chris Meagher replaced Psaki on the podium.

“As you can see, things are changing and moving pretty quickly around here today,” said Meagher, who was joined by national security adviser Jake Sullivan.

No reporters who attended Monday’s White House briefing “are considered close contacts,” and the White House is “currently conducting contact tracing,” Meagher said.

“Any member of the press deemed to be a close contact will be contacted,” he added, “but if a close contact is established.” [to have tested positive]If it weren’t for yesterday’s briefing.” Psaki tests positive for Covid-19, will skip Biden’s Europe trip
