“As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American people at this time,” she said.
“With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American people remotely.”
McEnany had come under fire for her decision to hold multiple press conference after President Donald Trump reportedly tested positive for the virus. However, she has repeatedly stated that she did not knowingly have the virus during any of the press conferences.
“I definitively had no knowledge of Hope Hicks’ diagnosis prior to holding a White House press briefing on Thursday.”
McEnany will remain quarantined for the foreseeable future and work remotely.
