Update on the Health and Safety Precautions taken within the Executive Residence

Press Release:

The health and safety of the Residence staff is of the utmost importance to the First Family.

    Since March, the Residence has adopted hospital-grade disinfection policies, had White House Medical Unit lead coronavirus workshops so staff could have their concerns addressed, significantly reduced staff, and encouraged maximum teleworking. The Residence also installed additional sanitization and filtration systems throughout the Executive Mansion.

    The health of Residence staff members and their families are a paramount concern to the First Family so the following precautionary measures have been taken during this pandemic:

    In March, similar sanitization and filtration systems were provided to each Residence employee to be used in their homes to further protect them and their family members.

    In the beginning of April, all Residence staff were required to wear masks at all times.

    Residence staff in direct contact with the First Family are tested daily, with support staff tested every 48 hours.

    In addition to support from the Medical Unit, the Residence has hired independent health consultants who are available to check on staff and their families, facilitating ancillary testing as needed.

    The Residence also hired a 'well-being' consultant, which staff members can speak to anonymously, specifically to focus on mental health concerns.

    With the recent positive results of the President and First Lady, staff wear full PPE and continue to take all necessary precautions, which include updated procedures to protect against cross contamination.
