Mike Pence’s Chief Of Staff Tests Positive For COVID-19 By Kirsten West Savali ·October 24, 2020October 25, 2020

Marc Short, Chief of Staff to Vice President Mike Pence, tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, becoming the latest in a laundry list of people in or close to the Trump Administration to test positive for the virus, including President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and their son, Barron Trump.

“Today, Marc Short, Chief of Staff to the Vice President, tested positive for COVID-19, began quarantine and assisting in the contact tracing process,” Pence’s press secretary Devin O’Malley said in a statement. “Vice President Pence and Mrs. Pence both tested negative for COVID-19 today, and remain in good health.”

Marty Obst, one of Pence’s senior adviser’s, tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this week, but is not considered a close contact to the vice president. According to O’Malley, even though Short is considered a close contact according to CDC guidelines, Pence will neither stop nor reduce his campaign schedule, the Hill reports.
