Attorney General William Barr will self-quarantine for several days out of caution after President Trump and several other lawmakers test positive for the coronavirus, according to a report.

Barr was potentially exposed to COVID-19 during a White House event on September 26 announcing Amy Coney Barrett’s appointment to the Supreme Court. He was seen on video having a conversation with Kellyanne Conway, who has since tested positive for the virus.

Justice Department spokesman Kerri Kupec said on Sunday evening that Barr had been tested for COVID-19 four times since Friday morning and all four results were negative.

“He feels great and has no symptoms,” she wrote on Twitter. “Thank you to everyone who expressed their concern and support! ”

According to the New York Times, Barr had previously said through a spokesperson that he would not be quarantined.
