Milley Tests Positive for COVID
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley is in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19.
A spokesperson said Milley’s experiencing mild symptoms.
“He is experiencing very minor symptoms and can perform all of his duties [remotely]. He has received the COVID-19 vaccines including the booster,” Joint Staff spokesperson Col. Dave Butler said in a statement.
“All other Joint Chiefs of Staff except for one tested negative for COVID-19 [on Sunday].”
Butler added that Milley’s most recent contact with President Joe Biden was January 12, but he had tested negative several days before and after Gen. Odierno’s funeral last week, where he last saw the commander-in-chief.
