Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former Fox News host and a senior adviser to the Trump campaign, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, a person familiar with her condition told The New York Times.
Guilfoyle is currently dating President Donald Trump’s eldest son Donald Trump Jr. and is a frequent surrogate for the president on the 2020 campaign trail. She is also the national chairwoman of the Trump Victory Finance Committee and oversees fundraising for the president’s reelection campaign.
CNN reported that Guilfoyle tested positive in South Dakota before she was slated to attend Trump’s Independence Day fireworks celebration at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. According to The Times, Guilfoyle and Trump Jr. did not travel on Air Force One, and she was reportedly the only person in the group who tested positive.
“After testing positive, Kimberly was immediately isolated to limit any exposure,” Sergio Gor, the chief of staff for the Trump Victory Finance Committee, told CNN. “She’s doing well, and will be retested to ensure the diagnosis is correct since she’s asymptomatic, but as a precaution will cancel all upcoming events.”
Gor added that Trump Jr. has tested negative for the disease but is self isolating and also canceling all public events as a precautionary measure.
A source told CNN that Guilfoyle has not recently been in contact with the president, but she attended his rally last month in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she stood backstage. She was also in Phoenix, Arizona, for Trump’s event with Students for Trump. Both events were indoors, there was no social distancing, and masks were not required.
