President Donald Trump’s physician says the president is experiencing “no symptoms” of COVID-19 after returning home from the hospital Monday night.
His physician, Navy Cmdr. Sean Conley, says in a new memo released by the White House that the president’s medical team met with him in the residence Tuesday morning.
He says that Trump had a “restful first night at home” and that his vital signs remain stable, including his blood oxygen level.
The doctor did not provide any details on what medications the president is currently taking, including whether he has been administered additional steroids.
But he says, “Overall he continued to do extremely well.”
Vice President Mike Pence’s doctor says Pence does not need to quarantine and has continued to test negative for COVID-19 as he prepares for Wednesday’s vice presidential debate.
White House physician Dr. Jesse Taylor Schonau says in a memo released Tuesday that Pence “has remained healthy, without any COVID-19 symptoms” and has continued daily tests, which have all come back negative.
The doctor said Pence is not considered to have had close contact with anyone who has tested positive this week, including President Donald Trump and some of his senior aides, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
The CDC defines close contact as having been within six feet of someone for 15 minutes or more.
The memo says Pence “is encouraged to go about his normal activities and does not need to quarantine.”
