On Saturday, the American Conservative Union announced on Twitter that one of the attendees at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, has tested positive for coronavirus.

CNN– When asked by reporters if he was worried about being exposed to coronavirus after he attended CPAC, Trump said, “I’m not concerned at all.”

Trump, who was speaking alongside Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro ahead of their dinner at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, also noted that the administration would not cancel any political rallies as the virus spreads.

“We’ll have tremendous rallies. We’re doing very well. We’ve done a fantastic job, with respect to that subject, on the virus,” Trump said.

Mike Ricci, communications director for Governor Larry Hogan, tweeted about how “given the scale of the conference” located in their state, they decided with the CDC that it was appropriate for Maryland to handle the notification to the public. Ricci also said that once they found out about the person who tested positive for coronavirus, they reached out to the White House and the HHS.

WJZ CBS Baltimore tweeted that President Trump spoke at CPAC on February 29, which is in the same timeframe as the person with the virus reportedly attended the conference.

In a tweet, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisholm quickly squashed any rumors or concerns that President Trump “met with or was in close proximity” with the coronavirus victim who attended CPAC.

NBC News shared an official statement from President Trump’s physician regarding the coronavirus, President Trump, the First Family, and the entire White House Complex:

White House: “The President’s physician and United States Secret Service have been working closely with White House Staff and various agencies to ensure every precaution is taken to keep the First Family and the entire White House Complex safe and healthy.”


Please pray for everyone who attended CPAC that no one else was infected with the virus, and that the person infected will have a full recovery.
