  • White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has tested positive for COVID-19, multiple outlets reported Friday.
  • Two officials confirmed Meadows’ diagnosis to CNN, as well as people familiar with the matter to Bloomberg News.
  • Bloomberg News’ Jennifer Jacobs also reported that at least four other White House aides tested positive for COVID-19 as well, according to sources.
  • Meadows’ diagnosis comes after a slew of people, including President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, tested positive for the coronavirus last month.
  • He was also at Trump’s bedside when the president was hospitalized with COVID-19 in early October.
  • More than three dozen people connected to the Trump administration have also tested positive for COVID-19, including White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and former Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway.
  • Several of those who tested positive attended a White House event two months ago for the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, which top US infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci has considered a super-spreader event.
  • Meadows attended an election night party at the White House earlier this week, and he has been photographed on multiple occasions without a mask.
  • Representatives from the White House declined to comment.
