White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham tests negative for coronavirus -White House

WASHINGTON, March 24 (Reuters) - White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, under quarantine since contact with a Brazilian official earlier this month, tested negative for coronavirus and will be back at work on Wednesday, the White House said.

Grisham, one of President Donald Trump’s top aides, had been with the president at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, on March 7 when Trump played host to a dinner with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and a Brazilian delegation. The Brazilian press aide later tested positive for the virus.

“Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, who has been quarantined since coming in contact with Brazilian officials almost two weeks ago and working from home, has received negative COVID-19 test results and will be back to work tomorrow,” said White House spokeswoman Judd Deere.
