Vice President Mike Pence is not in quarantine and plans to be at the White House on Monday, a spokesman said on Sunday, despite media reports that Pence was self-isolating after a staffer tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

"Vice President Pence will continue to follow the advice of the White House Medical Unit and is not in quarantine," spokesman Devin O’Malley said in a statement.

]"Additionally, Vice President Pence has tested negative every single day and plans to be at the White House tomorrow,” the statement added.

The statement from the vice president's office came after a report from multiple media outlets that Pence had gone into self-isolation away from the White House after an aide tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, according to Bloomberg reporter Jennifer Jacobs. 

NBC News also confirmed the report, citing administration sources.

Pence’s press secretary, Katie Miller, the wife of Trump’s senior adviser, Stephen Miller, tested positive for the coronavirus a day after confirmation that Trump’s personal valet had been diagnosed with the disease.

Reuters on Sunday said there were no plans to seperate President Donald Trump and Pence seperate despite concerns. 

Two coronavirus cases in the White House last week spurred fears of contagion for the president and vice president, who are leading the U.S. response to the pandemic, and who have both resumed travel and business schedules even as the U.S. death toll from the virus nears 80,000.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany sought on Friday to defend administration efforts to protect Trump and Pence, pointing to new measures taken by the White House including contact tracing and putting in place all guidelines recommended for essential workers.

The White House has also instituted daily coronavirus tests for Trump and Pence.

Reuters contributed to this report.
