“I’m sure he’ll do what’s necessary and what’s appropriate,” Lewandowski said referring to Pence. “And look, we’ve also seen Kamala Harris’ team — members of her team come down with COVID and she took the necessary precautions.”

“So, let’s see where this goes, but I have not spoken to the team directly on that,” he said referring to Pence quarantining. 

Pence’s chief of staff Marc Short tested positive for COVID-19, making him the latest White House official to contract the virus and the second person close to Pence whose case became public on Saturday. 

Short is one of three top aides to Pence who has tested positive in the last week or so. More broadly, the White House has been hit with a large number of positive COVID-19 cases.

Liz Allen, the communications director for Sen. Harris, the Democratic vice presidential candidate, tested positive earlier this month. Harris did cancel some planned travel up to Oct. 18, but the Biden campaign noted that Harris had been been in close contact with Allen or one other aide who tested positive.

Short, in contrast, as Pence's chief of staff is a part of the vice president's inner circle.

Pence has tested negative for COVID-19 but is not quarantining as the presidential race heads into its final week.
