Vice President Kamala Harris is going to Walter Reed Medical Center for a “routine doctor’s appointment” on Sunday after coming into contact last week with three Democratic lawmakers from Texas who tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Fox News.
The news of her trip to the hospital in Bethesda, Md., just outside the nation’s capital came as she tweeted: “This Delta variant is no joke. Get vaccinated.”
Harris met with the Lone Star State Democrats last Wednesday and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in his Capitol Hill office.
Symone Sanders, her spokeswoman, said the Veep did not come into close contact with the ill lawmakers.
“Based on the timeline of these positive tests, it was determined the Vice President and her staff present at the meeting were not at risk of exposure because they were not in close contact with those who tested positive and therefore do not need to be tested or quarantined,” Sanders said Saturday, noting
