Conway attended a White House ceremony last weekend where Trump introduced his Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett. About 150 attended the Rose Garden ceremony, but most of them did not wear masks and were packed together for the event.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC), who attended the event, also said that they tested positive, as did Notre Dame University president John Jenkins. A White House reporter who attended the event also tested position.
Conway was seen talking with other administration officials, including Attorney General William Barr.
She also attended debate preparation sessions for Trump.
Trump went to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday evening.
Conway’s husband, George Conway, also tweeted on Friday evening, responding to a story about Secret Service agents being upset that the president’s actions put them at risk.
“I can relate,” Conway wrote.
Kellyanne Conway served as counselor to the president until the end of August. She also had served as Trump’s campaign manager in 2016.
