CHICAGO (NewsNation Now) — President Donald Trump announced overnight Friday that he and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for coronavirus.

Both the president and the first lady are said to be experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

NewsNation has compiled a list of administrative officials who have since been tested for the virus.

As of Monday morning, these are the following officials or notable people close to the president who have tested positive for the virus:

  • President Donald Trump
  • First lady Melania Trump  
  • Senior White House adviser Hope Hicks  
  • Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel
  • U.S. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah)
  • U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.)
  • Kellyanne Conway (former counselor to the president)
  • Bill Stepien, President Trump’s campaign manager
  • U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.)
  • Former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie
  • Nick Luna, one of the president’s personal assistants
  • White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany

At this time, the following officials have tested negative for the virus:

  • Vice President Mike Pence
  • Second Lady Karen Pence  
  • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin  
  • Attorney General William Barr  
  • Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden (tested negative twice)
  • Joe Biden’s wife Dr. Jill Biden 
  • Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris  
  • Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett  
  • Secretary of State Mike Pompeo  
  • White House Adviser Larry Kudlow   
  • Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf  
  • White House adviser Jared Kushner  
  • White House adviser Ivanka Trump  
  • White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows  
  • Gen. Mark Milley  
  • HHS Secretary Alex Azar   
  • Ohio governor Mike Dewine and his wife Fran DeWine

Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett and her husband had coronavirus earlier this year and recovered, two administration officials told the Associated Press. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Barrett was nominated to the high court last week after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Trump held a press conference outside where few people wore masks. Barrett and her family were not wearing them.

Barrett has been meeting with senators ahead of her confirmation hearing, including Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, who also announced Friday that he had tested positive for the virus.

The science is unclear on whether someone who has the virus can get it again.
