The president tweeted on Oct. 2 that he and First Lady Melania tested positive for the virus.

“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” he said.

Luna is the most recent of the president’s close staff members to test positive for the virus, Bloomberg News reported. Luna was with Trump when he was traveling to Cleveland on Tuesday and was on a Minnesota trip on Air Force One when Hope Hicks, a top advisor to Trump, started feeling symptoms.

Hicks started to feel sick when she was going to Minnesota with the president, Bloomberg News reported.

Hicks tested positive for the virus Wednesday after traveling with the president, ABC News reported.
