Harris visits Walter Reed for ‘regular’ doctor’s appointment days after meeting with infected Texas Democrats


A White House official told LBL Sunday about a “routine doctor appointment” at Walter Reed Medical Center going to Vice President Kamala Harris.

A visit to the Bethesda, Maryland, hospital follows Tuesday’s meeting with Texas Democratic lawmakers. Three of the Democrats had tested positive for the coronavirus, with one testing positive Friday night and two others positive Saturday morning.

LBL asked Harris’ office if the vice president was showing any symptoms of COVID-19, but did not immediately respond.

On Saturday, Harris’ spokesman Simone Sanders said Harris had not been in close contact with the infected lawmakers.

“Based on the timeline of these positive tests, it was determined that the Vice President and his staff present at the meeting were not at risk of exposure as they were not in close contact with those who had tested positive and were therefore not tested positive. No need to do or quarantine,” Sanders said in a statement, adding that Harris and his staff have been fully vaccinated.

Harris’s visit to Walter Reed came as he tweeted a warning about the delta version of the virus: “The delta version is no joke. Get vaccinated.”

Caucus President Chris Turner said in a statement, “The House Democratic caucus is following all CDC guidance and protocols. It’s a sober reminder that COVID is still with us, and although vaccination offers tremendous protection.” Still, we must take necessary precautions.”

Texas Democrats flew to DC on a private flight as they skipped a special session of the state legislature to halt a vote on new voting reforms. On Tuesday morning, members of the Texas House of Representatives who are still in the state passed a House of the House resolution requiring all members to be present—those who fail to do so could be arrested and sent to the state capitol. can be brought in.

When Democrats, who were already in D.C. at the time, did not attend, he was arrested for being taken to the Capitol. Governor Greg Abbott said that because he left the current special session, he would “continue to convene special session after special session because the overtime will continue until they step in to vote.”
