Politico’s Kyle Cheney reported that “former Schiff staffer tests positive for coronavirus.”
“[He] left Schiff’s office 10 days ago,” Cheney adds.
Rep. Adam Schiff confirmed this information and announced that a former staff member tested positive for COVID-19. The staff member left the office ten days ago, Schiff said.
“As a result,” Schiff said, “we consulted with the House Attending physician and will be acting on their recommendations.”
“Medical professionals believe that my former staff member likely contracted the virus after leaving the office, but we will still be taking additional precautions over the next few days,” Schiff said.
“The former staffer is feeling better and no current staff have reported any flu-like symptoms at this time.”
Meetings and district events have been postponed, Schiff said.
Staff will telecommunicate from home for the foreseeable future.

I was informed that a former staffer who left our office 10 days ago has tested positive for COVID-19.
Although doctors believe the staffer contracted the virus after leaving my office, I'm taking additional distancing precautions, including postponing meetings and teleworking: pic.twitter.com/EfwsDo1BZG
