Former N.J. Gov. Chris Christie has tested positive for COVID-19 just days after he admitted he was in a room with a group of maskless White House advisers and staff members - at least four of whom later tested positive for the virus - to help prepare President Trump for the first presidential debate. He updated the public on Saturday, revealing that he has tested positive for coronavirus.
Christie is among a slew of people connected to the White House who have come down with the coronavirus.
Christie, 58, has become the latest person from the U.S. president's inner circle to test positive for Covid-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately.
Gov. Phil Murphy sent well wishes to Christie on Twitter Saturday afternoon. "I want to thank all of my friends and colleagues who have reached out to ask how I was feeling in the last day or two".

In 2011, Christie was taken to a hospital following an asthma attack en route to an event.
Trump early Friday morning announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19, days after holding a Supreme Court nomination ceremony last Saturday for Judge Amy Coney Barrett and attending his first presidential debate against former Vice President Joe Biden in Cleveland on Tuesday.
Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, who also had worked for Christie's campaigns, and University of Notre Dame President John Jenkins, also have tested positive. They said he has not had a fever in 24 hours. He said he's only experiencing mild symptoms but went to the hospital because he has asthma.
President Trump himself was confirmed to have the virus on Friday and was airlifted to Walter Reed Medical Center, also "out of an abundance of caution", according to White House.
