On Monday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said she had tested positive for COVID-19.
In a statement released on Monday, McEnany said that after testing negative "consistently", including every day since Thursday, she tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday morning while "experiencing no symptoms."
McEnany went on to say that no reporters, producers, or members of the press had been listed as close contacts by the White House Medical Unit.
"Moreover, I definitively had no knowledge of Hope Hicks' diagnosis prior to holding a White House press briefing on Thursday," McEnany's statement continued.
Hope Hicks, one of Trump's closest advisers, tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, Oct. 1, just one day before President Trump himself announced that he and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
McEnany said Monday that she'll begin quarantine immediately and that she'll "continue working on behalf of the American People remotely."
