Hogan Gidley, deputy White House press secretary confirmed that a White House staff had tested positive for the virus and that Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence had tested negative.

The president said Thursday that he and Pence would begin taking daily coronavirus tests, an increase from the weekly tests that had been White House protocol. She is married to Stephen Miller, a top Trump adviser.

On April 3, the White House said that anyone expected to be near Trump or Pence will be given a rapid COVID-19 test out of an abundance of caution. "Vice President Pence is negative for Covid-19 and is therefore not asymptomatic". "It should have been stopped right at the source, and it wasn't", President Trump said. "This is why the whole concept of tests aren't necessarily, right, the tests are ideal but something can happen between a test where it's good and then something happens and then all of a sudden, she was tested very recently and tested negative". He added: "Know who he is, good person, but I have had very little contact, Mike has had very little contact with him".

As recently as Thursday, Katie Miller was seen mingling with officials at an outdoor prayer ceremony hosted by Trump and attended by dozens of people, including the wives of Trump and Pence and many senior staff. The White House had six people to deplane Air Force Two before it left. Katie Miller was not on the plane and had not been scheduled to be on the trip. Presidents have historically had valets who they interact with regularly. The White House declined to say whether President Trump planned to quarantine as well.

The hearing was supposed to include the head of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr Anthony Fauci, but the White House blocked him. The administration has also directed regular deep cleaning of all work spaces.

Miller's positive diagnosis for Covid-19 puts the potential threat of the infection squarely into the president's inner circle.

"There is a member of the vice president's team who is positive for coroanvirus", McEnany said. The president said he would be tested daily going forward, instead of once a week.

A Defense Department spokesman said, "As with any other service member who tests positive, the individual will quarantine in their residence, and will receive medical care as needed".
