Vice President Mike Pence is self-isolating away from the White House after one of his aides was diagnosed with coronavirus on Friday, according to three people familiar with the situation.

Pence, who has tested negative for COVID-19 several times, including on Sunday, is staying home out of caution, said the sources, who asked not to be identified.
