Hope Hicks, a top adviser to President Donald Trump, has tested positive for the coronavirus and is suffering from symptoms, a source familiar with the matter cited Thursday.
Hicks travels regularly with the President of Air Force One and accompanied him along with other senior aides for the presidential debate in Cleveland earlier this week.
The White House said in a statement that Trump “takes the health and safety of himself and of everyone who stands up for him and the American people very seriously” and that he follows guidelines to keep COVID-19 exposure as low as possible possible to limit.
Bloomberg News first reported that Hicks had tested positive for the virus.
Hicks returned to the White House earlier this year after a stint in the private sector. She was previously the White House communications director and spokesperson for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
