Coronavirus live updates: U.S. death toll tops 80,000

Vice President Mike Pence put “a little distance” between himself and others this weekend after a staffer tested positive for COVID-19, a senior administration official told NBC News.

Pence has continued to test negative for the virus, the official said. Devin O’Malley, a spokesperson for Pence, said that Pence “is not in quarantine” and that he plans to be at the White House on Monday.

That came as the U.S. coronavirus death toll passed 80,000 with more than 1.34 million cases, according to NBC News’ count.
