White House officials said Friday that President Donald Trump is feeling only “mild symptoms” following the announcement that he and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for COVID-19.

Trump announced his positive test early Friday morning, sending Washington and the rest of the country into fresh turmoil just a month before the presidential election. Hours earlier, the president announced that Hope Hicks, one of his closest advisers with whom he had recently traveled, has been infected and he and the first lady have started to quarantine.

Questions remain on who the president has been in contact with in the days prior to his test and who have been infected with the virus. A negative test means only that the person was not infected at the time of testing. Because the virus’ incubation period can be up to 14 days, a negative test earlier in that time frame does not mean a person was not infected.

Here’s a running list of people who have tested positive and negative. This is a developing story, not a comprehensive list, which we will keep updated in the days to come.
