Two WH Residence Staffers Tested COVID+ Weeks Ago

The New York Times reports:

Two members of the White House residence staff tested positive for the coronavirus roughly three weeks ago, according to two people familiar with the diagnoses.

The people who tested positive were not employees who come in direct contact with the president and the first lady, one of the people familiar with the diagnoses said. But the positive results again raise questions about how and when President Trump may have been exposed to the virus.

Judd Deere, a spokesman for the president, declined to comment specifically on the diagnoses, referring to a statement about not commenting on the personal health of individuals. The White House “does take any positive case seriously and has extensive plans and procedures in place to prevent further spread,” he said.
