Per the court's regular testing protocols, Kavanaugh had a routine test ahead of Justice Amy Coney Barrett's investiture on Friday, said the statement.

He has no symptoms and has been fully vaccinated since January.

Kavanaugh, 56, has his last negative test that came Monday before the justices' in-person conference.
