Vice President Kamala Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, the White House announced, underscoring the persistence of the highly contagious virus even as the U.S. eases restrictions in a bid to revert to pre-pandemic normalcy.

The White House said Tuesday that Harris tested positive and she “has exhibited no symptoms.” Ms. Harris will isolate herself at her residence but continue to work remotely, and would only return to the White House once she tests negative for the virus.
