Hicks, 31, who serves as counselor to the president and also traveled with him to a Wednesday rally, tested positive Thursday, according to an administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private health information. 

She is the closest aide to to test positive so far. She previously served as White House communications director and re-joined the administration this year ahead of the election. There is no indication the president has the virus. 

Hicks traveled with the president multiple times this week, including on Marine One, the presidential helicopter, for the Minnesota rally Wednesday, and aboard Air Force One to Tuesday night’s first presidential debate in Cleveland. 

She was spotted getting off Air Force One in Cleveland without her mask.
