Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this year but has since recovered, three officials familiar with her diagnosis told The Washington Post.
Two of the officials said she tested positive for the virus in the summer. All of the people spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose her medical condition.
The White House declined to comment on Barrett’s earlier diagnosis.
As a Supreme Court nominee, Barrett is now tested daily, and most recently had a negative test Friday morning, according to White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere.
