Transportation Sec. Buttigieg latest in Biden’s orbit to test positive for COVID-19

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms, making him the latest member of President Biden’s Cabinet to contract the virus.

“I have tested positive for COVID-19 and am experiencing mild symptoms. I plan to work remotely while isolating according to CDC guidelines, and look forward to when I can safely return to the office and the road,” he wrote on Twitter Monday.
