Jen Psaki Says White House Now Testing Every 2 Weeks For COVID

( On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that every member of the White House staff is taking a COVID-19 test every two weeks, despite every member of the White House staff already having received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

If the vaccine worked as well as we were told it does, then why is the White House maintaining pre-vaccine rules and regulations?

“I’m tested twice a week, many are tested twice a week, some are tested once a week,” Psaki told reporters.

Psaki was then asked how often the president is tested. She said that President Joe Biden is tested every two weeks, typically.

Psaki insisted that nothing has changed about White House protocols and that the most important takeaway from what they are doing is that they have “stringent protocols” in place that include a “range of requirements” of staff and that they also include requiring people to abide by public health guidelines.

With most people in the White House being tested twice a week or once per week, and with President Joe Biden being tested every two weeks, shouldn’t we be stopping to ask why this is necessary if the vaccine is already available to every American who wants one?

The news comes as the number of COVID-19 hospitalizations begins increasing steadily in the United States, with the Delta variant of the virus understood to be to blame. This new variant of the virus, which originated in India, is reportedly much more contagious than the original strain.

Six Democrat lawmakers from Texas who recently abandoned their state to avoid voting on election security legislation put forward by Republicans contracted the virus last week after meeting with Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington, D.C. Every one of the lawmakers who came down with the virus was already double-vaccinated.
