HUD's Ben Carson tests positive for coronavirus


Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson tested positive for Covid-19 Monday morning, a HUD official confirmed to POLITICO.

Carson went to Walter Reed Army Medical Center after experiencing symptoms, the official confirmed.

He is the latest Trump administration official to contract the virus, following a cluster of infections last month, when President Donald Trump was hospitalized.

Carson attended the election night party at the White House on Tuesday night.

HUD did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Carson’s schedule or recent interactions with other administration officials.
