President Donald Trump's national security advisor, Robert O & # 39; Brien, has tested positive for the novel corona virus, but there is no risk of exposure to Trump or Vice President Mike Pence, the White House said in a statement.
"He has mild symptoms and was self-isolating, working from a safe location outside the site. There is no risk of being exposed to the President or the Vice President. The National Security Council continues to work," the statement said.
The White House said employees are regularly tested for the virus and O & # 39; Brien is the highest official who is rated positive in the face of the pandemic.
A U.S. military member who works as a valet in the White House tested positive for coronavirus in May, as did Vice President Mike Pence's spokesman.
