WASHINGTON (Reuters) -U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price said he tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday after experiencing symptoms and is isolating for 10 days.

Price met with Antony Blinken (U.S. Secretary) last week at New York’s United Nations General Assembly.

“After experiencing symptoms for the first time this morning, I tested positive for COVID-19 shortly thereafter, & will now quarantine for the next 10 days,” Price said in a Twitter (NYSE:) post.

He said, “I feel under the weather. But I am thankful for the protection against severe illness provided by safe and effective vaccinations.”
