On Wednesday, ABC News' Conor Finnegan reported that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in quarantine after possible exposure to COVID-19.


The announcement of Pompeo's quarantine comes after he hosted a massive indoor holiday party, even as his department issued guidance to State Department workers to cancel non-essential in-person events. Pompeo invited 900 people to the party, although fewer than 70 attended.
