White House communications aide Alyssa Farah told reporters that the White House will share the number of positive Covid-19 tests in the West Wing going forward.

“We’re giving updates as we have them about numbers within the West Wing and initiating contact tracing,” Farah said while speaking to reporters on the north lawn Sunday.

When asked whether those numbers could be shared with reporters, Farah said: “Okay let me make sure I have the most accurate information and I’ll circle up and get it to the pool.”

Farah wouldn’t comment on the New York Times reporting that two members of the residence staff tested positive for the coronavirus roughly three weeks ago, saying she wouldn’t comment on private citizens.
