Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19.

Her office announced Tuesday that Harris testes positive in both rapid and PCR tests. However, she has so far been asymptomatic.

Harris took part in a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Brentwood and visited Vandenberg Space Force Base in Santa Barbara County. She also traveled up to San Francisco for an event. It's unclear how or when she may have contracted the disease. 

She has not been in close contact with President Joe Biden or First Lady Jill Biden, the statement read.
