There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place.

US embassy staffer. Diplomatic visa.

My guess...

No testing prior to flight.

Positive test on arrival, hence isolation at the US Embassy. Or negative, but still isolated in the embassy anyways.

Further test positive on day 13.

2 weeks is the average. There are outliers who take longer than 14 days.

That makes three senior US Embassy staff who have tested positive on arrival in Cambodia this month.
The ministry on Thursday reported one more case of a senior US embassy official contracting Covid-19, bringing the total number of cases in Cambodia to 234.
The ministry said the senior US embassy official tested positive for Covid-19 on July 29 after being in quarantine [at the US Embassy] for 13 days.

Looks like the American Embassy in Phnom Penh is a microcosm of the US in general. Steer well clear for a while.

That's the top of a slippery slope - first you avoid the American Embassy, next you start avoiding the Americans, then people start to avoid westerners in general... ;)

But, IMO, it's not a good look to ship out your embassy staff to a foreign country without testing them first. It looks careless, and also that you have no consideration for your host country. And then it can lead to the above: people avoiding Americans because they appear to be careless and inconsiderate with other people's health. I'd also be very pissed off if I had to quarantine because of this. Hopefully, the US authorities will take note and there won't be any repeats.

The EU extended its travel ban on Americans yesterday for the second time in a month, as Covid-19 continues to ravage the US. The EU began lifting its travel restrictions on July 1, welcoming visitors from 14 countries, including Canada, South Korea and Australia. The US was left off of that list, and the EU extended its ban on travellers from the US on July 16.
