Secret Service employee tests positive for coronavirus

A Secret Service employee has tested positive for the coronavirus, the agency said Monday. 
The employee is in quarantine and the agency will continue to monitor their condition, the Secret Service said in a statement.
The agency said that the employee has not had contact with other employees or anyone the Secret Service is responsible for protecting for nearly three weeks. 
“The Secret Service is committed to protecting the health and safety of its employees, its protectees, and the public. Accordingly, the agency continues to follow all guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and continues to communicate those updates to the workforce,” a Secret Service spokesperson said in a statement. 
The employee will not be identified due to privacy concerns. 
President Trump tested negative for the coronavirus earlier this month, according to the White House physician. 
Vice President Pence and his wife Karen Pence both tested negative for the virus, a spokesperson said. A staffer in the vice president's office, however, was diagnosed with the disease.
Several lawmakers have announced they have tested positive for the coronavirus, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who became the first senator to announce he has tested positive for the virus on Sunday. 
A handful of lawmakers are self-quarantining after Paul’s announcement, and others have self-quarantined after exposure to others who announced they tested positive. 
Across the U.S., more than 35,000 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
