“In addition, about a half-dozen journalists as well as members of the White House and National Security Council staffs said they tested positive after the event. Their names are being withheld because they have not announced their status publicly,” the Washington Post revealed on Wednesday.

“Several White House aides who tested positive did so after traveling to Poland last week with President Biden and before the Gridiron dinner. White House press secretary Jen Psaki — who attended the Gridiron dinner — reiterated Wednesday that all White House employees who come in proximity to Biden are regularly tested,” the report added.

President Joe Biden appeared at the event via video but did not attend the event in person.

Both Dr. Anthony Fauci and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky also attended the event.
