President Donald Trump will travel to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, after testing positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, according to the White House.
Donald and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for the virus on Thursday, according to a White House physician statement released early Friday morning.
The diagnoses came after White House adviser Hope Hicks tested positive for the virus a few hours earlier. Donald and Melania Trump took tests after Hicks tested positive and began their quarantine process.
A separate physician statement released Friday afternoon stated that the president feels “fatigued but in good spirits,” while Melania Trump has a mild cough and a headache.
The White House medical team will “maintain a vigilant watch” over the two during their recovery process, according to a White House physician statement.
As of Friday afternoon, all previously scheduled campaign events with the president are being moved to virtual events or temporarily postponed, according to a statement from campaign manager Bill Stepien.
