Meadows traveled with President Donald Trump in the run-up to Election Day and last appeared in public early Wednesday morning without a mask.

It comes over a month after Trump and first lady Melania Trump tested positive. They and their son, Barron, who also tested positive, have since been cleared.

Meadows had been one of the close aides around Trump when the president came down with the virus, but was tested daily and maintained his regular work schedule.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and Stephen Miller, a top aide to Trump, both confirmed in early October that they tested positive for COVID-19.

It was not immediately clear when Meadows tested positive.

Also, Bloomberg and ABC News reported that Nick Trainer, the Trump campaign battleground states director, is also infected.

On Friday, the U.S. again topped over 100,000 new COVID-19 cases for the third day in a row, hitting the highest number since the pandemic began.
