Members of the media working at the White House were advised this week to wear masks after multiple staffers tested positive for the novel coronavirus pandemic.


In recent days, a spokesperson for Mike Pence and a valet tested positive for COVID-19.

On Monday, the White House Correspondents Association urged media staffers at the White House to begin wearing masks due to the risks.

White House staffers were also spotted wearing masks on their way into the building over the weekend.

On Sunday, White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett admitted that it is "scary to go to work" at the White House.
