The White House in the United States canceled daily tests for COVID-19

White House staff in the United States are no longer required to take daily tests for coronavirus; now it can be done once a week, the portal Axios reported.

It is noted that such a decision may be associated with the vaccination of many people working in the White House.

As White House spokesman Kevin Munoz told the portal, in addition to testing for employees, many other measures are still in place to prevent infection with the coronavirus.

“The White House maintains strict COVID-19-related protocols … the testing protocols are justified by some factors, including the employee’s vaccination status, and are just one of some measures in place to reduce workplace risk,” he said, adding that the White House still requires wearing masks and maintaining distance.

In January, the incoming administration of US President Joe Biden introduced a requirement for White House staff working “next to top officials” to take a daily COVID-19 test and wear N95 respirator masks at all times.
