Robert Redfield, executive of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, “will likely be teleworking” for an upcoming couple of weeks after he was exposed to an individual who had Covid-19, a CDC spokesperson said to First Coast News team.
Redfield “has already been identified as having a low-risk direct exposure during May 6th to a person in the White House that possibly had Covid-19. He said that he was feeling great and shows no signs and symptoms. He will be teleworking for the following couple of weeks,” the representative explained.
The FDA released that administrator, Dr. Stephen Hahn, intended to self-quarantine immediately after coming in contact with a person that checked positive for the coronavirus.
None of the two bureaus identified the individual or even other people with whom Redfield and Hahn came into contact.
Both of these individuals are on the WH coronavirus task force.
White House press secretary Judd Deere declined to verify the statement that Redfield may self-quarantine, however, this person mentioned the doctor of the President & White House affairs rep. “continue to operate/work very closely in order to guarantee every single safety measure is applied in order to keep President Trump, the 1st Family members, and White House Facility risk-free and healthy.”
