Vice President Kamala Harris has tested negative for COVID-19 after testing positive for the virus about a week ago.

The results of Harris' rapid antigen test were announced Monday. 

The White House said last week that Harris tested positive a day after returning to Washington following a weeklong trip to home state California.

Harris recovered at the vice president's home in Washington, D.C., at the Naval Observatory and was taking a prescription of the coronavirus treatment Paxlovid. 

The 57-year-old Harris, who is full vaccinated and has received two boosters, will reportedly wear a mask for the next 10 days, per Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
