U.S. Army chief returns to Pentagon after self-quarantine

WASHINGTON, Oct 13 (Reuters) - The Army’s chief of staff returned to the Pentagon on Tuesday, in a sign that the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff were starting to move towards ending their self-quarantine following a coronavirus scare at a recent top-level meeting.

Two senior military officials who attended the meeting earlier this month tested positive for COVID-19, leading to almost all of the military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff to go into self-quarantine last week.

“I was tested this morning and all negative and I’ve been cleared by the docs (doctors) to come back in,” U.S. Army Chief of Staff General James McConville said during a press conference at the Pentagon. (Reporting by Idrees Ali and Phil Stewart Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
