Ivanka Trump’s personal assistant has tested positive for COVID-19, according to CNN.

  • The assistant is reported to not have been around Trump for several weeks due to work-from-home policy. CNN reported that both Trump and her husband, White House senior advisor Jared Kushner, tested negative for the coronavirus on Friday.

However, the White House faces more cases of infection around the highly ranked officials.

  • One of President Donald Trump’s Oval Office valets tested positive earlier last week, Business Insider reported.
  • Last Friday, Katie Miller, Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary and wife of White House advisor Stephen Miller, was confirmed to have tested positive.
  • Trump and Pence have been tested weekly with Abbott rapid test devices, and both are confirmed by CNN to test negative last week.

Trump commented on Miller’s coronavirus infection, and said:

“She tested very good for a long period of time, and then all of a sudden today she tested positive. She hasn't come into contact with me. She's spent some time with the vice president.”

Both Trump and Pence attracted criticism last week for not following the public health guidelines issued by the White House, as they were both captured not wearing face masks when visiting manufacturing sites for medical equipment.
