A CPAC 2020 attendee tested positive for the novel coronavirus in New Jersey on Saturday, the American Conservative Union confirmed, indicating that the attendee’s exposure to the virus took place prior to the conference.
CPAC speakers included President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.
“This attendee had no interaction with the president or the vice president and never attended the events in the main hall,” the ACU statement reads. “The Trump administration is aware of the situation, and we will continue regular communication with all appropriate government officials.”
