In Effort to Curb Coronavirus in the West Wing, VP and POTUS will ‘Keep Their Distance’

Desperate times call for disparate measures.

The White House a little problem on their hands right now, and it’s forcing some drastic measures to be taken.

Within the halls of the West Wing, coronavirus is spreading.  Two staffers have already tested positive in recent days:  Katie Miller, who works closely with Vice President Mike Pence, and then also the unnamed personal assistant to First Daughter Ivanka Trump.

Given the close quarters of the West Wing, the White House regulars are now grappling with how best to keep the virus from continuing to spread.

Katie Miller, Pence’s press secretary, tested positive for the virus last week along with a personal valet to Trump.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Pence, who heads the White House coronavirus task force, “has made the choice to keep his distance for a few days” from the president.

“I would just note that that’s his personal decision to make that,” McEnany said. “As to how many days he does that, that’s a decision for the vice president.”

The news comes as a great many state governors are looking for ways to expedite the reopening of their economies, and as the federal government continues to drag their feet on the next round of much-needed fiscal stimulus.
