Robert O’Brien has actually been isolating and working from house after contracting the virus at a family occasion, Bloomberg reports.
Mr O’Brien has moderate signs and there is no risk of exposure to the US president, the White Home said.
” He has moderate symptoms and has been self-isolating and working from a protected place off website,” a statement said.
” There is no risk of exposure to the President or the Vice President.
” The work of the National Security Council continues uninterrupted.”
Mr O’Brien is reportedly doing most of his work by phone.
White Home staff are routinely evaluated for the infection and Mr O’Brien is the most senior official to have actually evaluated positive throughout the pandemic.
An US military member who works at the White House as a valet tested positive for coronavirus in May, along with Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary.
The United States has more than 4.2 million validated coronavirus cases and almost 147,000 have actually passed away after contracting the infection.
