WASHINGTON — A Trump 2020 campaign official and the girlfriend of Donald Trump, Jr., tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of President Donald Trump’s celebration event at Mt. Rushmore Friday.

Kimberly Guilfoyle and Trump, Jr., who tested negative on Friday, will cancel their upcoming events and will self-isolate, according to Sergio Gor, chief of staff to Trump Victory Finance committee.

“She’s doing well, and will be retested to ensure the diagnosis is correct since she’s asymptomatic,” Gor said in a statement. “But as a precaution will cancel all upcoming events. Donald Trump Jr was tested negative, but as a precaution is also self isolating and is canceling all public events.”

Guilfoyle traveled to South Dakota with Trump, Jr., but not aboard Air Force One with the president, according to The New York Times and ABC News.

She did not come into contact with the president or the group traveling with him, nor did his eldest son, according to the Times and ABC News. Guilfoyle and Trump, Jr., plan to drive back to the East Coast.

Guilfoyle was scheduled to attend the Friday evening event. South Dakota’s governor, Kristi Noem, said earlier this week that despite concerns over the spread of the virus, masks would be provided but not be required at the Mt. Rushmore event and social distancing would not be in effect.

Guilfoyle also attended Trump’s recent rally in Tulsa, Okla. A reporter and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain tested positive after attending the Tulsa rally.

Six people who were involved in the planning for Trump’s Tulsa rally on June 20, including some Secret Service members, tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of that event and underwent a quarantine procedure.

The president and vice president are tested for the virus routinely, and people who come into contact with them are also screened for coronavirus.
