(NEXSTAR) – Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who worked closely with Trump administration officials in recent weeks as part of Presidential Debate preparations, confirmed Saturday morning that he is now positive for coronavirus.
“I just received word that I am positive for COVID-19,” Christie tweeted.
It’s not yet clear when Christie became infected, but he is just the latest on a growing list of Trump administration officials and associates testing positive.
Christie was with President Donald Trump Tuesday morning in preparations for the first debate with Joe Biden. Since then both the president, aide Hope Hicks, and counselor Kellyanne Conway have tested positive for coronavirus.
