The White House said Tuesday that second gentleman Doug Emhoff had tested positive for COVID-19.

Kamala Harris, the Vice President, tested negative, but has altered her schedule in light of her husband’s condition. Out of an excess of caution, Harris’ spokesperson Sabrina Singh announced she will not give her planned remarks at the White House for Women’s History Month.

Singh added, “The Vice President tested negative for COVID-19 today and will continue to test.”

According to a White House official, President Biden was not in close communication with Emhoff. The official stated, “He was tested this weekend as part of his usual cadence, and we will continue his regular cadence of testing.”

Biden made the mistake of saying “the first lady’s spouse has tested positive for COVID” during his remarks at the White House event, before correcting himself after being told that he is the first lady’s husband.

Biden also expressed his admiration for Harris, saying that she “chose not to take a chance” because her husband had contracted COVID and was doing well.

“By the way, I’m informed he’s alright when he does that. She opted not to join us today, though, out of an abundance of caution. But let’s send her our best wishes since she’s a symbol of how proud she is of our real-change team.”

The last time Harris and Biden were seen together was during an informal ceremony with lawmakers on Tuesday afternoon to sign the $1.5 trillion omnibus budget measure.

Emhoff’s positive test comes just days after former President Barack Obama revealed he had contracted the illness as well.

Obama tweeted on Sunday, “I just tested positive for COVID.” “I’ve had a scratchy throat for a few days, but otherwise I’m good. Michelle and I are thankful to have been vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative for the disease.”
