President Trump made his first public appearance on Friday night since he and the First Lady were hit by COVID-19 and headed to Marine One to fly to the country's premier military hospital.
A White House doctor said Friday that the other members of the first family had tested negative for the virus.
The White House said the "few days" visit to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was a precautionary measure and Trump would continue to work in the hospital's presidential suite, which was equipped to perform his official duties.

"President Trump is still in good spirits, has mild symptoms and has worked all day," said press secretary Kayleigh McEnany in a statement.
Out of caution and on the recommendation of his doctor and medical experts, the President will be working in the President's offices of Walter Reed for the next few days. President Trump appreciates the support for both him and the first lady, ”she added.
Trump left the White House and pointed a thumb up but did not speak as he boarded Marine One.
Crew members, intelligence agents, and White House staff wore face-covers to protect themselves from the President on board the helicopter.
In a video taken before he left for Walter Reed, Trump said, "I think I'm very fine, but we will make sure everything goes well."

Earlier on Friday, the White House said Trump was injected with an experimental antibody cocktail by the White House doctor.
Just a month before the presidential election, Trump's revelation that he was positive for the virus came via tweet around 1 a.m. after returning from an afternoon political fundraiser.
First Lady Melania Trump also tested positive, the president said, and several others in the White House have also raised concerns that the White House or even Trump himself may have spread the virus further.
Meanwhile, Eric Trump is said to be speaking via video Monday to New York State investigators who are investigating his family's business practices. This is evident from court files filed on Friday.
Eric has given no indication that he will try to postpone the interview in light of his father and stepmother's coronavirus diagnosis.
