Donald Trump Jr. is self-quarantining after his test for Covid-19 came back positive earlier this week, his spokesman has confirmed. The eldest son of the US president has not shown any symptoms linked to the virus so far.
“He’s been completely asymptomatic so far and is following all medically recommended COVID-19 guidelines,” the spokesman said, as cited by Reuters.
Trump Jr, who as an Executive Vice President at The Trump Organization, has been holing up in his cabin after the diagnosis, he added.
A businessman and father of five, Trump Jr has been actively supporting his father’s legal battle against what the Trump campaign argues was a widespread fraud that cost him the US presidential elections victory.
He has become yet another member of the Trump family and the president’s inner circle to have contracted the desease. His partner, Kimberly Guilfoyle, came down with the novel virus back in July, after attending an array of campaign events.
