Incoming White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has put himself in quarantine because he might have come into contact with a person who tested positive for the coronavirus, his spokesman said Monday.
Meadows is not exhibiting symptoms, and a precautionary test came back negative, the spokesman said on Twitter.
“Mark Meadows was advised this weekend that now 12 days prior at CPAC, he may have come into contact with the COVID-19 positive test individual,” the tweet said, referring to a conservative conference that took place late last month.
“He’ll be self-quarantined till the 14 day period passes Wednesday.”
Trump appointed Meadows to the post of chief of staff on Friday.
