President Trump's national security adviser Robert O'Brien has tested positive for coronavirus, a White House official confirmed.

"National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien tested positive for COVID-19. He has mild symptoms and has been self-isolating and working from a secure location off site," a statement from the White House said. "There is no risk of exposure to the president or the vice president. The work of the National Security Council continues uninterrupted."

Jennifer Jacobs, senior White House reporter for Bloomberg News, said O'Brien allegedly contracted the virus at a family event.

O'Brien's diagnosis also comes just days after The Eisenhower Executive Office Building cafeteria was closed after a worker contracted coronavirus.
