List: What we know about top-level White House staff’s coronavirus test results

Coronavirus Watch

(Nexstar) — On Thursday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania tested positive for coronavirus, which causes COVID-19. The news came after Trump aide Hope Hicks had a positive test result earlier that day. In the days since, several members of Trump’s political orbit have been screened for the virus.

Team Trump traveled extensively in the days before his positive test, including the first Presidential Debate in Cleveland on Tuesday. As a result, determining who may have been exposed by the Trump entourage, many of whom reportedly refused to wear masks at the debate, has now become a major undertaking.

We’ve compiled the list below of test results from Trump’s inner circle that have been publicly reported. It should be noted that tests are not 100% accurate and many of the people listed below have been in close contact on the campaign trail in recent days. It’s possible that results for some of the individuals below may change after subsequent tests.

Here’s a list of U.S. officials, Trump family members and event guests who have publically reported results as of 12:30 p.m. ET on Oct. 3. This will be updated as information comes in:
