Kayleigh McEnany, White House press secretary, tests positive or COVID-19, now 12th at Rose Garden ceremony

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and two of its staff tested positive for COVID-19, just days after the president revealed a similar diagnosis. McEnany said she had tested positive “without feeling any symptoms.”

McEnany, who is one of 12 officials in a growing list of Trumpworld figures to test positive for the highly contagious virus after attending an event at the Rose Garden last Saturday, recently interacted with reporters on Sunday evening – and was without mask. Many media also reported that at least two other members of the White House press shop – Chad Gilmartin and Karoline Leavitt – have tested positive. Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship, who attended a prayer walk with Vice President Mike Pence and Franklin Graham before attending the Rose Garden ceremony, announced on Monday that he had also tested positive for the deadly virus.

“No journalist, producer or member of the press is listed as close contacts by the White House medical unit,” she said in the statement. “As a critical worker, I have worked diligently to provide the necessary information to the American people at this time. With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and continue to work remotely on behalf of the American people. “

Trump’s main aide Hope Hicks was confirmed on Thursday, just hours before the president himself announced that he and the first lady had also contracted him.
