Guilfoyle was feeling fine and not showing symptoms, and Trump Jr. has tested negative, the person said. She has not had any recent interaction with the president.

They did not come into contact with the president and are expected to return to the East Coast on their own.


Guilfoyle, the national chairwoman of the Trump Victory Finance Committee and an adviser to the campaign, attended the president's rally last month in Tulsa, Okla. That gathering and Friday's fireworks show in South Dakota come amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected more than 2.7 million people in the U.S. and killed nearly 130,000.

Attendees at both events flouted social distancing recommendations and largely did not wear masks, both of which are recommended by federal health officials to slow the spread of the virus. Trump has personally eschewed wearing a mask in public, even as GOP leaders urge him to do so.

Guilfoyle is the latest individual in proximity to the president to test positive for the virus. One of the president's military valets tested positive in March, as did the vice president's press secretary.
