Supreme Court returns to in-person arguments as justice tests positive for COVID-19
October 4, 2021
The U.S. Supreme Court is returning to in-person arguments for the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. But the nation's highest court is running into snags that have plagued other institutions grappling with the ongoing health crisis.
The court on Friday morning announced that Justice Brett Kavanaugh tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. He has been fully vaccinated since January and is showing no symptoms, according to a press release.
"Justice Kavanaugh's wife and daughters are also fully vaccinated, and they tested negative on Thursday," the court said.
