AG Barr to self-quarantine out of caution amid coronavirus worries

1 min read


Attorney General William Barr will self-quarantine for several days out of an abundance of caution after President Trump and several other lawmakers tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a report.

Barr was potentially exposed to COVID-19 at a Sept. 26 White House event announcing the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. He was seen on video having a conversation with Kellyanne Conway, who has since tested positive for the virus.

Department of Justice spokesperson Kerri Kupec said Sunday evening that Barr has been tested for COVID-19 four times since Friday morning and all four test results were negative.

According to the New York Times, Barr previously said through a spokesperson that he would not quarantine.
