White House Doctor: Trump Doesn’t Need To Be Tested

The New York Post reports:

He brought in a doctor’s note. The White House released a letter from President Trump’s in-house physician late Friday to quell fears that his boss is harboring a case of the deadly coronavirus — and possibly spreading it around the West Wing by remaining at work.

Trump does not need to be tested for the disease or to be quarantined, wrote Dr. Sean Conley, even though he “briefly came in contact” with two people who later came down with symptoms and tested positive. Trump will only receive a coronavirus test if he develops symptoms, the letter stated.

The president, however, said earlier Friday at a Rose Garden press conference that he would “most likely” be tested for coronavirus “fairly soon” after a Mar-a-Lago meeting last weekend with several people — including members of an official delegation from Brazil — who later fell ill.
