Bloomberg — President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, has told associates he has coronavirus, according to people familiar with the matter, adding to the outbreaks connected to the White House.
It wasn’t immediately clear when Meadows learned that he had contracted the virus or whether he had developed symptoms of Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus. He informed a close circle of advisers after Tuesday’s election, one of the people said.
Meadows tried to keep information about the Pence team outbreak from becoming public a few weeks ago. This news, broken by @JenniferJJacobs and her colleagues, was on a Friday night amid election mess. https://t.co/0HeUgpi8kp— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) November 7, 2020
