Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

Given this diagnosis, the Vice President, due to his ongoing proximity to the President and Hope Hicks, should also be quarantining until he gets two negative tests. I have no idea if that is going to happen. But right now the national security of the United States is at very high risk.
I agree with Dr. Rainer. And yes, I know, I’m not a medical doctor.

Given that Vice President Biden, Dr. Biden, and a number of others were all in proximity to the President, Hope Hicks, and other members of the President’s entourage during the debate on Tuesday, I expect that we will be informed tomorrow about precautions being taken by Vice President Biden, Dr. Biden, and other members of the Biden-Harris campaign team. The President’s family members and entourage on Tuesday refused to wear masks in the debate hall on Tuesday despite having agreed to that stipulation in advance. It is possible, but I don’t know how probable, that one or more of the other people in attendance on Tuesday has been infected. COVID-19 does not care about partisan political affiliation.
I would also expect that the vice presidential debate and at least the second presidential debate will either be cancelled or rescheduled.
