Laurie attended the Sept. 27 nomination event for Amy Coney Barrett at the White House and took part in the Prayer March on the Mall with Vice President Mike Pence and Franklin Graham earlier that day.
That event drew thousands of conservative Christians, most of whom did not wear masks or practice social distancing.
The pastor is experiencing mild symptoms and will quarantine at home with his family, according to a church spokesperson.
President Donald Trump, at least three Republican senators and several others who attended the White House event, which was held outdoors but also include indoor receptions, have tested positive for the coronavirus.
Let’s all be praying for God’s intervention and healing for our President and First Lady! https://t.co/Ec1ey0RUB3— Greg Laurie (@Greg Laurie)1601615846.0
