Multiple journalists in the White House have tested positive for the coronavirus.

On Friday, the White House Correspondents' Association announced three reporters were COVID-19 positive.

One of the reporters traveled to Pennsylvania on Sunday for a campaign rally.

Another had been at the White House for a presidential briefing on Sunday.

The third attended the briefing as well, along with the Rose Garden ceremony announcing President Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

The Association says contact tracing was underway for the three cases and a number of White House journalists were self-isolating.
