WASHINGTON (AP) – Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of President Donald Trump, was quarantined Friday after hearing he had been infected with coronavirus, a spokesman said.
The younger Trump learned his diagnosis earlier this week and has had no symptoms, said the spokesman, who was given anonymity to discuss private medical information.
Trump Jr. follows all medically recommended guidelines for COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, the spokesman added.
The 42-year-old is the last member of the president̵
Elected President Joe Biden made President Trump’s response to the virus a top topic in the recently concluded White House race, although Trump has not yet acknowledged the outcome.
President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron have all recovered from their coronavirus infections in October. The president spent three days in a military hospital, where he was treated with experimental drugs; the first lady weathered her illness in the White House.
Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, tested positive for coronavirus in July.
