Donald Trump Jr. has tested positive for the coronavirus and is quarantining at his cabin in upstate New York.
He remains system free so far, his spokesman said.
‘Don tested positive at the start of the week and has been quarantining out at his cabin since the result. He’s been completely asymptomatic so far and is following all medically recommended COVID-19 guidelines,’ a spokesman for Donald Trump Jr. told Dailymail.com
Bloomberg News first reported the infection.
Don Jr. owns a cabin in upstate New York where he likes to fly fish in the Delaware River.

President Donald Trump’s oldest son escaped catching the disease when his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle had it over fourth of July
President Donald Trump’s oldest son escaped catching the disease when his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle had it over fourth of July.
He is the second of the president’s children to test positive for the virus, following Barron Trump’s diagnosis last month.
Barron tested positive in October when both his parents had COVID.
His infection comes as coronavirus cases are in the rise in the United States with more than 11.9 million people infected. More than 253,000 Americans have died from the disease.
It’s unclear where the president’s oldest son may have been infected. He was at the White House on election night where several of Trump’s staff later tested positive for COVID, including White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.
He’s the latest in a long line of people close to the president to get infected.
Also on Friday, Andrew Giuliani, the son of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, announced he had COVID.
‘This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19. I am experiencing mild symptoms, and am following all appropriate protocols, including being in quarantine and conducting contact tracing,’ he wrote on Twitter.
Andrew works under President Trump as a White House public liaison assistant and appears to have been involved in Trump’s failed re-election campaign.
The 34-year-old attended his father’s bizarre press conference on Thursday where hair dye dripped down the sides of the heavily sweating 76-year-old’s face as he claimed there was ‘evidence’ to ‘massive voting fraud’ in the presidential election.
Three low-level staffers at the White House also tested positive for the virus in recent days, according to NBC News.
The disease is spreading throughout Washington.
Two Republican senators, Rick Scott of Florida and Chuck Grassley of Iowa, have announced in the last few days that they have COVID.
At this point 26 House members and 10 senators have tested positive or been presumed positive since the beginning of the pandemic, according to a count by CNN.
