White House Cafeteria Worker Tests Positive

A CAFETERIA EMPLOYEE ON THE WHITE HOUSE GROUNDS HAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS

(CNN) – A cafeteria employee on the White House grounds has tested positive for coronavirus.

An email to administration officials says Ike’s Eatery and the new executive office building’s cafeteria have been temporarily closed.

The email says the risk of transmission is low because of precautions like gloves and masks.

Officials say they conducted contact tracing and claim no executive office staff need to be quarantined.

Ike’s Eatery isn’t in the West Wing, but dozens of the president’s staffers walk there for meals.
