Kimberly Guilfoyle, girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., tested positive for the novel coronavirus while in South Dakota and as a result did not attend the Mount Rushmore event. She is asymptomatic and Trump Jr. has tested negative, according to media reports.
Neither has been in direct contact with the president and did not fly on Air Force One.
“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.”
Guilfoyle, 51, is one year older than first lady Melania Trump and was formally married to California governor Gavin Newsom.
Trump Jr., 42, and Guilfoyle will be driving home rather than taking a flight, a source said.
The two recently attended an outdoor gathering of about 100 people in the Hamptons and reportedly did not wear a mask.
