RNC Chair Tested For Coronavirus After Fever, Flu-Like Symptoms. Recently Visited Trump’s Mar-A-Lago, Senate Lunch




Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee and a Michigan resident, has been tested for coronavirus and is at home waiting for the results, a party spokesman said in a statement Saturday.

McDaniel, 46, was advised Friday evening to seek testing for the novel coronavirus upon her doctor’s recommendation after experiencing characteristic coronavirus symptoms.



“Last night, Chairwoman McDaniel began experiencing a fever and flu-like symptoms, and she went to her local hospital in Michigan for treatment,” a statement posted by Ahrens said.

“Flu and strep tests were administered and came back negative,” the statement added.

McDaniel’s physician concluded that a test for COVID-19 was necessary, given her coronavirus-like symptoms and the other tests that came back negative.

“As she awaits results, out of an abundance of caution, we are contacting everyone the Chairwoman remembers coming in contact within recent days,” the statement added. “Upon the advice of doctors, she and her family are self-quarantining at their home.”



McDaniel was present for several events over the past week with top Republican and government officials.

An RNC official told USA TODAY she went to a Mar-a-Lago event with President Donald Trump on March 6, attended a lunch event with Vice President Mike Pence on March 7, went to an event in Orlando with Trump on Monday before flying back to Washington, D.C., on Air Force One. She also attended Republican senators’ lunch meeting on Tuesday.
