On Friday, first daughter Ivanka Trump's personal assistant reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. Although the assistant hasn't had close contact with her for weeks and both she and President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner have tested negative, it marks even further spread of the virus among White House staff.
Commenters on social media had a number of opinions on the news:
