White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is working from home ‘out of an abundance of caution” amid the spread of coronavirus, a White House official told SaraACarter.com.
Several officials in Washington have elected to self-quarantine. That list includes Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, and Rick Scott, R-FL, who both voluntarily isolated themselves despite reporting zero symptoms.
Earlier this month, the two lawmakers were in contact with a Brazilian official at Mar-a-Lago who later tested positive for the virus. Graham took the COVID-19 test, which came back negative, he shared on Twitter Sunday.
I look forward to getting back to work with my Senate colleagues and President Trump to contain this virus and stabilize our economy.
Thank you very much for all the prayers and well wishes!

President Trump took the test after he attended the Mar-a-Lago meeting. Like Graham, he showed no symptoms and received a negative result.

Grisham was also at the meeting, according to reports.
