Even so, his expected return to work would still disregard recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Barr has received four negative Covid-19 test results since Friday morning, including Sunday, Justice Department spokesman Kerri Kupec said on Sunday.
According to Kupec, he expects to return to the Justice Department during the week.
The CDC recommends a person who is quarantined at home for 14 days if they may have been exposed to Covid-19 to prevent the virus from spreading.
Barr was seen at the event without a mask, shook hands and mingled with the crowd. He and Conway, who announced she had tested positive on Friday, talked in close proximity for long periods of time and were barely three feet apart.
Barr then also attended the private reception for Barrett.
Following news of the president’s positive diagnosis early Friday, Barr went to a meeting at the Justice Department on Friday. Barr also went to the White House on Friday and Saturday for Covid tests – both were negative.
This story has been updated to include additional details on Barr’s participation in the most recent event that announced the President’s Supreme Court candidate.
