Hope Hicks, one of President Trump's closest aides, has tested positive for COVID-19 after traveling with the president aboard Air Force One to the presidential debate on Tuesday as well as the Trump rally in Minnesota on Wednesday.

"The president takes the health and safety of himself and everyone who works in support of him and the American people very seriously," Judd Deere said in a statement. "White House Operations collaborates with the Physician to the President and the White House Military Office to ensure all plans and procedures incorporate current CDC guidance and best practices for limiting COVID-19 exposure to the greatest extent possible both on complex and when the President is traveling."
