The pool of reporters covering Vice President Kamala Harris has been disbanded and sent home after a member of the pool tested positive for COVID-19, and the Brady Briefing Room is being cleansed as a precaution.

On Wednesday morning, the White House announced the positive tests and the precautions being taken via a pool report from McClatchy’s Michael Wilner, and took pains to note that VP Harris and President Joe Biden did not have contact with the infected individual:

Good morning from the White House. A member of the vice president’s press pool tested positive for COVID-19 this morning and so the POTUS pool is covering today’s swearing in ceremony.

This morning, a member of the Vice President’s press pool tested positive for COVID-19 during routine screening.

This individual did not have any contact with the Vice President or White House staff.
