Longtime investor Paul Tudor Jones tested positive for Covid-19 after attending a dinner to benefit the Robin Hood Foundation.
“I tested positive for COVID Thursday afternoon, the day after Robin Hood’s annual dinner. I had a negative PCR test for COVID on Monday, but had another PCR test on Thursday after a colleague at my home tested positive, ”Jones said in a statement provided to CNBC. “Everyone at the dinner has been vaccinated and we are sharing the information as we have it. I feel good, I have no temperature and I follow the COVID protocols. If I have inadvertently exposed someone, I am truly and deeply sorry. ”

Jones co-founded the foundation in the 1980s and is currently a member of the group’s board of directors. He has a net worth of $ 7.8 billion, according to Forbes. The Robin Hood Foundation separately noted that Jones “followed all protocols and showed no symptoms on the night of the annual benefit. Anyone who meets the CDC’s guidelines for high-risk exposure has been personally contacted. ”

There were 3,000 attendees at the Jacob Javits Center, according to an announcement at the event. A reporter from CNBC and another from NBC New York attended the event in their capacity as reporters.

The foundation dinner included musical performances by Bruce Springsteen, Alicia Keys and the Jonas Brothers. Legendary Beatle Paul McCartney attended and was honored at the gathering of some of New York’s richest business leaders.
