President Donald Trump announced Friday that he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19 and will immediately enter isolation.
"Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!" Trump tweeted.
The first lady also tweeted that she and the president are "feeling good" and she has postponed all upcoming engagements.
The announcement came just hours after senior White House aide Hope Hicks confirmed she tested positive for the novel coronavirus. She began experiencing symptoms following a rally in Minnesota and traveled with the president several times this week.
Trump's physician said in a memo that both the president and the first lady are "well at this time" and will be staying at the White House. "Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering," he added.
Vice President Mike Pence said on Twitter that he is praying for President Trump and Melania. The Vice President and his wife, Second Lady Karen Pence, have now tested negative for the virus.
"Karen and I send our love and prayers to our dear friends @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS Melania Trump. We join millions across America praying for their full and swift recovery. God bless you President Trump & our wonderful First Lady Melania" Pence Tweeted.
