President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett tested negative for coronavirus on Friday, according to White House spokesperson Judd Deere.
He added that Barrett, who is tested daily, is following CDC guidance and was last with the President on Saturday when she was officially nominated.
Pat Cipollone has also tested negative for coronavirus, a senior administration official told CNN. This official said that everyone from the White House who has been in close contact with Barrett yesterday has tested negative.
When asked for reaction on President Trump’s Coronavirus diagnosis and whether people are freaking out inside, the official said: “No. This is the Trump White House,” noting it’s just another busy day per usual and they are staying calm.
Barrett was also on Capitol Hill this week meeting with GOP senators.
