“Today, in preparation for travel to Europe, I took a PCR test this morning. That test came back positive, which means I will be adhering to CDC guidance and no longer be traveling on the President’s trip to Europe,” Psaki said in a statement.
Psaki will no longer be traveling to Europe with Biden.
Despite her second positive test in four months, Psaki continued to “thank” the vaccine.
“Thanks to the vaccine, I have only experienced mild symptoms,” she said.
The news also comes as former First Lady Hillary Clinton recently tested positive for COVID-19, though cases nationwide have continued to decline overall in recent weeks, and the nation seeks to return to normal life following two years of pandemic restrictions.
