A member of the military serving as one of U.S. President Donald Trump’s valets has tested positive for COVID-19, the White House said Thursday. It said Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence have since tested negative and “remain in good health.” It marked the latest coronavirus scare for the president, and the first known instance where a person who has come in close proximity to the president has tested positive since several people present at his private Florida club were diagnosed with COVID-19 in early March. The valet tested positive on Wednesday, the White House said. “We were recently notified by the White House Medical Unit that a member of the United States Military, who works on the White House campus, has tested positive for coronavirus,” White House spokesperson Hogan Gidley said in a statement.
