Chris Christie tests positive for Covid-19

“I just got the news that I am positive for COVID-19,” Christie he wrote. “I want to thank all my friends and colleagues who have contacted to ask how I have been feeling over the past couple of days. I will receive medical attention today and will keep the necessary people informed of my condition.”

Christie was part of a group of senior Trump campaign staff members who were tested on Friday following news of the president’s positive diagnosis.

Here are the cabinet members and others around Trump who have been tested

Trump announced early on Friday morning that he tested positive for Covid-19, days after holding a Supreme Court nomination ceremony last Saturday for Judge Amy Coney Barrett and attending his first presidential debate against former Vice President Joe Biden at Cleveland Tuesday.

Since then, other members of the President’s Debate Preparation Group and inner circle have announced they tested positive for the virus.

Former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, who attended the Rose Garden nomination ceremony and helped with debate preparation sessions, announced Friday that she tested positive. Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien tested positive at Covid-19 on Friday night, according to an official.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
