On Thursday, Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Jacobs revealed that Hope Hicks, a longtime close aide to President Donald Trump, has tested positive for coronavirus.


Hicks traveled directly with the president aboard Air Force One this week, both to the debate and to his rally in Minnesota, making it one of the closest-proximity cases of the virus to him. However, Jacobs reports that there is no sign that Trump himself has been infected.
