Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday.

ABC News reported that Carson — who attended the White House election night party last week — tested positive for the coronavirus on Monday morning.

Carson’s deputy chief of staff reportedly told ABC that the HUD secretary is “in good spirits” and “feels fortunate to have access to effective therapeutics which aid and markedly speed his recovery.”

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows tested positive for Covid-19 last week after he was spotted at the White House election night party without a mask on.

At least four other White House staffers also reportedly tested positive.
