President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett was diagnosed with coronavirus late this summer but has recovered, according to three sources familiar with the matter.

Barrett and her husband Jessee were diagnosed. Jesse Barrett was asymptomatic but Amy Barrett felt “a little under the weather but recovered,” one of the sources said.

Barrett tested negative for coronavirus on Friday, according to White House spokesperson Judd Deere.

He added that Barrett, who is tested daily, is following CDC guidance and was last with the President on Saturday when she was officially nominated.
