However, Guilfoyle hasn’t recently been with the president and Don Jr. either, who tested negative for the virus, according to someone familiar with what happened.

Neither went to the South Dakota event with Trump nor traveled on Air Force One.

They should return to the east coast to avoid contact with other people, the familiar source told The New York Times.

Sergio Gor, chief of staff to the Trump Victory Finance committee, said: “After a positive test, Kimberly was immediately isolated to limit any exposure.

“She is doing well and will be retested to ensure that the diagnosis is correct because she is asymptomatic …

“… But as a precaution, all future events will be canceled.

“Donald Trump Jr has been tested negative, but as a precaution, he also self-isolates and cancels all public events. “

Last month, Guilfoyle participated in Trump’s election rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

At the time of the rally, eight Trump campaign staff tested positive for the coronavirus and dozens of secret service personnel had to quarantine after two agents also tested positive.

The virus takes two to 14 days to incubate.

After the event, several senior campaign officials decided to quarantine for a week instead of going to the office, two sources told CNN.

Trump attended an Independence Day celebration on Mount Rushmore in South Dakota on Friday.

But Republican state governor Kristi Noem said in a recent interview that masks and social distancing will not be necessary during the “big event.”

“We have told these people who have concerns that they can stay at home, but those who want to come and join us, we will distribute free masks, if they choose to wear one.” ”

“But we won’t take any social distance,” said Noem. “Each of them has the opportunity to make a decision with which they are comfortable. ”

As of Friday evening, South Dakota had nearly 7,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus.
