Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh tests positive for Covid-19

By Carl De Vries and Veronica Strakqualursi | CNN

Justice Brett Kavanaugh has tested positive for Covid-19, the Supreme Court said on Friday, the first publicly known case of coronavirus among high court judges.

The court said in a statement that Kavanaugh, who has been fully vaccinated, tested positive Thursday night. Nyaya’s immediate family tested negative and has no symptoms.

The court said Kavanaugh performed a routine COVID test Thursday before the honor ceremony for fellow Justice Amy Connie Barrett on Friday, which he would no longer attend as a precaution.

His positive diagnosis for coronavirus could mean that he will not be on the bench on Monday, the start of a new term and what will be the first individual session with all nine judges.

Kavanaugh recently tested negative for Covid-19 on Monday, along with other judges, ahead of their meeting behind closed doors to discuss which cases should be added to the court’s docket. He took part in the ACLI Capital Challenge three-mile race at Anacostia Park in Washington on Wednesday.
