Ivanka Trump heads to work following her father's COVID-19 diagnosis


Ivanka Trump took a negative COVID-19 test just hours after her father confirmed that both he and First Lady Melania contracted the virus.

The spokeswoman for the 38-year-old confirmed on Twitter on Friday morning that both Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner had been retested for the virus after their father's positive diagnosis and both had received negative test results.

Ivanka and Jared, 39, headed off to normal work Friday morning, openly disregarding the CDC's quarantine guidelines, which advise anyone in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 to isolate for 14 days, too if you have since tested yourself negative.

The first daughter traveled on Air Force One in the wee hours of Wednesday morning after the presidential debate with her father, while her husband Jared flew to Minnesota that same day with Hope Hicks, who also tested positive.

Trump's aide, Hope, developed symptoms of the virus while the group was returning to DC.

It is unknown if Ivanka and Jared were tested before leaving their Washington, DC home or if the tests were conducted at the White House.

The couple have also not yet confirmed whether their three young children – Arabella, Joseph and Theodore – have been tested.

Ivanka declined to personally address her health on social media Friday morning, leaving it to her spokesperson to share the news of her negative test result instead. Shortly after she had imagined leaving her, she spoke to her father and stepmother of sympathy from home.

"I pray for the speedy recovery of my father and Melania and for everyone affected by COVID-19," she wrote on Twitter.

"As they fight this together, the president will continue to fight for the people of this great country."

The First Daughter's departure for work came just hours after the President and First Lady tweeted that they both tested positive and were isolating themselves in the White House – two days after attending the first presidential debate with several of Trump's children, including Ivanka, Tiffany, Don Jr and Eric.

Don Jr.'s partner Kimberly Guilfoyle and Eric's wife, Lara, were also in attendance, and it is believed the entire group has traveled to and from the Air Force One President debate.

Hope also traveled with the First Family to the presidential debate; She was discovered by DailyMail.com when she stepped off Air Force One in town without a mask.

During the debate, Ivanka posed for several masked photos next to Melania, and the two also sat next to each other during the event – however, the chairs were spaced to follow social distancing guidelines.

Ivanka's sister Tiffany and Lara and Kimberly could also be seen in the photos. None of them have yet to confirm whether they have been tested.

Following the debate, in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Ivanka shared a photo of herself and her father posing together without face masks on Air Force One. The first daughter stood over President Trump with her hand on her shoulder.

The photo was posted almost exactly 48 hours before Trump's tweet about his positive test result, writing: & # 39; Tonight @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will start the quarantine and recovery process immediately. We'll get through this TOGETHER! & # 39;

Although Ivanka tested negative for COVID-19 on Friday morning, the decision to leave home and go to work is in direct contradiction to CDC's quarantine guidelines.

Meanwhile, her husband Jared was also on his way to work Friday morning – despite traveling with Trump's aide Hope Hicks, who tested positive for COVID-19 19 hours before the president on September 30.

On Wednesday, Jared and Hope, 31, traveled to Minnesota together and were spotted side by side at Andrews Air Force Base as they prepared to board their plane. None of them wore masks.

Hours later when they returned to Washington DC, Hope felt uncomfortable, and she tested positive for COVID-19 less than a day later, Thursday morning.

The CDC advises anyone who is in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 to quarantine for 14 days after coming into contact with them – even if they have since tested negative themselves.

"Even if you get a negative COVID-19 test or feel healthy, stay home (quarantine) as symptoms can appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus," the CDC website said.

The CDC defines close contact as "within six feet of someone who has had COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more," which both Jared and Ivanka have been doing for the past few days.

Anyone falling under this category should "stay home and monitor their health" for 14 days after their last contact with someone with COVID-19.

Typically, according to the CDC, a person develops symptoms five days after becoming infected. However, symptoms can appear as early as two days after infection or as late as 14 days after infection, and the time period can vary.

It is believed that Ivanka was last in close contact with her father in the wee hours of Wednesday morning when they traveled back from Cleveland after the presidential debate, meaning that, according to CDC guidelines, she will stay in close contact with her father until the wee hours of Nov. October should self-isolate.

Jared was last known to be in close contact with Hope later that day. The CDC recommendations suggested that he should be quarantined by the afternoon of October 14th.

Although Hope developed symptoms of the virus on Wednesday evening and tested positive on Thursday morning, Trump and his daughter went to their scheduled performances on Thursday as usual.

The president attended a campaign event in Bedminster, New Jersey, while Ivanka traveled to North Carolina, where she visited various local stores and a local art gallery, before traveling to suburban Dallas where she was interviewed by Trump campaigner Mercedes Schlapp has been .

Ivanka traveled to Florida on Wednesday, where she attended two campaign events in Orlando: a visit to the Americans in the Asia-Pacific region for the Trump office and a "fireside chat" in which she spoke about her father's "amazing" economic policies.
