Aide to Vice President Mike Pence tests positive for coronavirus.

  • Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive for the coronavirus.
  • Miller was frequently in contact with members of the press, and the White House is now making more coronavirus testing available to journalists.
  • Miller is married to Stephen Miller, President Trump’s top White House aide.
  • The positive Covid-19 test comes one day after President Trump’s personal valet tests positive.
  • Pence was scheduled to travel to Des Moines, Iowa, Friday morning but the departure was delayed as staff dealt with the news.
  • The president said on Thursday that he and Pence would both begin taking daily coronavirus tests, an increase from the weekly tests that had so far been White House protocol.
