Kamala Harris’s Husband Tests Positive for COVID

Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband, the Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, had tested positive for coronavirus, according to reports, but Harris tested negative.

A tweet by Emhoff’s communications director, Liza Acevedo, revealed that yesterday, after modest symptoms, Emhoff tested positive for COVID-19. He is fully vaccinated and boosted three times. Right now, he’s not showing any symptoms, so he’s staying at home and working remotely.

Acevedo said that the vice president was tested for COVID-19, and the findings were negative.

Harris was tested for COVID-19 as a precautionary measure, according to Acevedo’s statement. She is still symptom-free.

On July 9th, Harris is expected to make an appearance in Las Vegas, Nevada, for a campaign event.

Reports show that President Joe Biden and his wife Jill were among those who spent the Fourth of July at the White House with Emhoff and Harris days before he was diagnosed.

In March 2022,  Emhoff screened positive for the coronavirus, and Harris caught it in April.  

Upon her return from the Essence Festival in New Orleans, Harris was seen dozing off on July 6th on a Marine chopper at Joint Base Andrews. As the helicopter was about to transport Harris to the vice president’s mansion in Washington, D.C., she seemed almost lifeless, with an assistant sitting close by.

Harris had been vivacious as she greeted an officer and made his way down the stairs to Marine 2 from Air Force 2. The 59-year-old Harris, however, appeared exhausted as she got into her seat on the helicopter, even though the rest of the passengers remained alert. Harris, who seemed listless, opened her eyes and moved her head several times.

According to her itinerary, Harris was only at the Essence Festival for a little over 90 minutes on Saturday.  According to her calendar, Harris is free on Monday, July 8th, and she was also not scheduled for Sunday.
