In a tweet Friday evening, Conway said she is experiencing mild symptoms including a light cough, and she is “feeling fine.”
“I have begun a quarantine process in consultation with physicians,” she wrote. “As always, my heart is with everyone affected by this global pandemic.”
Conway’s daughter Claudia posted news of her mother’s diagnosis on TikTok earlier Friday, posting a series of videos claiming Conway was coughing in their home.
Conway attended an event at the White House Rose Garden on Saturday where Trump officially nominated Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Supreme Court. Other attendees have since tested positive, including at least two Republican senators.
Conway left the White House at the end of August to spend more time with her family. She served as Trump’s campaign manager in 2016 and became one of his staunchest and high-profile defenders after he won the presidency.
Her husband George Conway, a prominent Trump critic, said on Twitter he “can relate” to Secret Service members quoted in an article he linked to, who reportedly expressed anger that they may have been exposed to the virus by Trump.
