Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced on Twitter Saturday that he tested positive for the coronavirus.

On Friday, while he was awaiting test results, Christie tweeted, “I feel fine and have no symptoms.”

Christie is the latest to announce testing positive for COVID-19 after attending recent events at the White House. He helped President Donald Trump prepare for the debate this past week. He also attended the Supreme Court nomination ceremony held in the White House Rose Garden last Saturday for Justice Amy Coney Barrett. At least seven other ceremony attendees have tested positive, NPR reports.
