The Hill cited a source in the White House who said that the medical staff from the White House advised Trump that she doesn’t need to self-quarantine but that the first daughter went ahead with her quarantine, regardless.
“News surfaced early Friday morning that Australian minister for home affairs Peter Dutton had tested positive for COVID-19. Dutton traveled to Washington, D.C., last week and met with Ivanka Trump, Attorney General William Barr and other officials on March 5, The Hill reported.
“The White House is aware that Mr. Dutton tested positive for COVID-19. He was asymptomatic during the interaction,” Deere said in a statement quoted by The Hill.
“Exposures from the case were assessed and the White House Medical Unit confirmed, in accordance with CDC guidance, that Ivanka is exhibiting no symptoms and does not need to self-quarantine. She worked from home today out of an abundance of caution until guidance was given,” Deere continued in a news conference with Barr and acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf along with other officials.
