White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced Monday on Twitter that she has tested positive for coronavirus.

“After testing negative consistently, including every day since Thursday, I tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday morning while experiencing no symptoms,” McEnany tweeted. “No reporters, producers, or members of the press are listed as close contacts by the White House Medical Unit.”

The White House press secretary said that she “definitively had no knowledge of Hope Hicks’ diagnosis prior to holding a White House press briefing on Thursday.”

“As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American People at this time,” McEnany added. “With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American People remotely.”
