White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Sunday that she had contracted a breakthrough case of Covid after members of her household tested positive.

Psaki was initially expected to leave Washington with the president on Thursday for his week-long trip to Italy and Scotland, but principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre joined instead.

Psaki said in a statement that she consulted senior leadership at the White House and the medical team on Wednesday and decided not to travel on the foreign trip.
