The White House management office sent a letter to staff members on Sunday to continue to monitor for potential symptoms of the coronavirus and to stay home if they have any, according to reports.
Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, said on Sunday she would not disclose the exact number of staff who caught the virus.
“There are privacy issues,” McEnany said. “We take the protection of personnel information here at the White House seriously.”
PRESIDENT TRUMP COULD RETURN TO “EARLY TOMORROW” IF CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO IMPROVE, DOCTORS SAY
President Trump sent a shock wave to Washington, DC last week when he announced that he and his wife had been diagnosed with the virus.
The letter lists the now-familiar list of symptoms of COVID-19, such as chills, loss of smell and difficulty breathing. The office said these workers should only return “after you have been cleared by the White House medical unit,” according to a message from Olivia Nuzzi, a reporter for New York Magazine.
A White House employee told reporters that the letter is not new and has been sent within the last few months.

The letter told employees not to go to work with the symptoms in order to reach the White House Medical Unit clinic.
