Kimberly Guilfoyle, girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., was supposed to be at the monumental rally in South Dakota yesterday, but she tested positive for coronavirus.
Sources say that Don Jr. has tested negative, but both will be isolated. Neither have been in contact with Trump and did not fly on Air Force One. Guilfoyle, 51, and Jr., 42, will be driving home.
“After testing positive, Kimberly was immediately isolated to limit any exposure. She’s doing well, and will be retested to ensure the diagnosis is correct since she’s asymptomatic, but as a precaution will cancel all upcoming events,” Sergio Gor, chief of staff for the Trump Victory Finance Committee, said in a statement. “Donald Trump Jr was tested negative, but as a precaution is also self isolating and is canceling all public events.”
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem offered a blunt message to those concerned about spreading the virus: There will be no social distancing.
An NBC source states that U.S. Representative and gubernatorial candidate Greg Gianforte and his running mate Kristen Juras will be tested and will self-quarantine after potential exposure to COVID-19.
“On Tuesday, Susan Gianforte and Kristen Juras attended an event with Kimberly Guilfoyle who has tested positive for COVID-19,” Gianforte campaign spokesman Travis Hall said in an email. “Since learning of their potential exposure, Greg, Susan, and Kristen have adhered to recommended guidelines. Out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of others, they will self-quarantine, be tested for COVID-19, and suspend in-person campaign events pending test results.”
