After close contacts get Covid, acting Sec.
Anthony Tata, who is performing the duties of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, tested positive for the coronavirus on Friday and twice subsequently, chief Pentagon spokesperson Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement.
Tata was tested because the Lithuanian Embassy informed the Pentagon that its Defense Minister, Raimundas Karoblis, tested positive for Covid-19.
Karoblis visited the Pentagon over several days in the last week, where he met with Miller, Tata, as well as Secretary of Navy Kenneth Braithwaite.
Miller and others won't isolate, the Pentagon spokesperson said:"As CDC COVID mitigation guidelines were followed during the Acting Secretary’s bilateral meeting with the minister, as well as meetings with Mr. Tata, Acting Secretary of Defense Miller is not quarantining," the Pentagon said.
