Late Thursday evening, President Trump announced that he and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for COVID-19. The tests were initially out of an abundance of caution after another White House staffer who was near the president in recent days tested positive. The two announced that they would follow quarantine guidelines as they look to recover from the virus. They are reportedly suffering only mild symptoms as of Friday morning.
We send our prayers and well wishes to the President and First Lady, and we hope they recover quickly. We also remind our members of the importance to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines to mitigate spread of this novel virus.
