The virus was discovered during testing by Alejandro Mayorkas before a planned foreign trip.
Ministry spokeswoman Marsha Espinosa said in a statement that Majorca “passed the test as part of the usual protocol before the trip,” and its result was positive.
Mayorkas was expected to travel to Colombia this week with Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
“He has only a slight nasal congestion; he is fully vaccinated, isolated, and will work from home in accordance with the protocols of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and medical guidelines,” Espinosa said.
The Ministry is engaged in tracking the contacts of the head of the department.
