Less than two days before he's due to appear in Minnesota, Vice President Mike Pence's office is dealing with five cases of COVID-19.
After news broke Saturday that one of his advisers, Marty Obst, had tested positive for the virus, it emerged Saturday evening that his chief of staff, Marc Short, tested positive. Early Sunday morning, news broke that three additional staff members had also tested positive.
But despite this, the VP's office told New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman that "While Vice President Pence is considered a close contact with Mr. Short, in consultation with the White House Medical Unit, the Vice President will maintain his schedule in accordance with the CDC guidelines for essential personnel."
This suggests he will still attend the planned rally in Hibbing, Minnesota on Monday.
Pence is due to speak at the "Make America Great Again" rally scheduled for 1 p.m. at the Range Regional Airport.
The CDC and Minnesota Department of Health recommend that if you are within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from two days before symptoms present or two days before a positive test, you should quarantine for 14 days.
