A reporter who traveled with President Donald Trump on his recent trip to Tampa Bay, Florida, has tested positive for coronavirus.

The diagnostic cames one day after the reporter was seen standing in close proximity to Trump and other members of his inner circle at the Pelican Golf Club in Belleair.

Gov. Ron DeSantis, Sen. Rick Scott, State Sen. Wilton Simpson, Pinellas County Commissioner Kathleen Peters and State Rep. Danny Perez were also present in the room, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Associated Press’ Zeke Miller told the White House Correspondents Association about the unidentified reporter’s diagnosis in a letter.

“We’ve already reached out to those who were in the pools with this individual, and the White House Medical Unit is conducting additional contact tracing and providing follow-on tests for those in the pools and potentially exposed,” Miller’s message read.
