Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that he will go into “modified quarantine” after getting exposed to a White House staffer who had tested positive for COVID-19.
Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said that the “low risk” exposure will see him stay at home and work remotely via teleconference.
Fauci has added that he will wear a mask continually for 14 days. Fauci said he may go into his NIH office during this time, but he will be the only person there. He is currently scheduled to appear before a Senate committee hearing on Tuesday.
