President Donald Trump will be admitted to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, for what his White House staff says is out of an "abundance of caution" following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
"Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the president will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days. President Trump appreciates the outpouring of support for both he and the First Lady," said White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
She said Trump "remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day."
Trump, 74, announced his positive COVID-19 test late Thursday night, one day after attending a fundraising event in Shorewood and flying to Duluth for a rally.
Some members of the GOP in Minnesota who had contact with Trump have been tested for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, with some of them quarantining. Congressman Jim Hagedorn announced Friday afternoon that he tested negative.
