White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has contracted COVID-19, according to multiple reports.

The positive test result was confirmed by ABC News and Bloomberg News.

"It wasn’t immediately clear when Meadows learned that he had contracted the virus or whether he had developed symptoms of Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus," Bloomberg News reported Friday night. "He informed a close circle of advisers after Tuesday’s election, one of the people said."

Bloomberg News also reported Trump campaign aide Nick Trainer tested positive.

In addition to Meadows, at least two other White House aides also tested positive, Bloomberg reported. It is the third outbreak in the White House.

Olivia Nuzzi of New York Magazine reported how Meadows spent Tuesday.

Meadows has complained of wearing masks, as The Daily Beast's Matt Wilstein reminded.

In the closing days of the campaign, former President Barack Obama slammed Meadows for saying "we are not going to control the pandemic."
