The US Navy's top officer came in contact with a family member infected with coronavirus and has entered into a one-week quarantine, Reuters reported Sunday.
Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday did not attend a Saturday meeting with fellow service chiefs at the White House with President Donald Trump due to the potential exposure, Task & Purpose's Jeff Schogol reported.
Gilday, 57, has so far tested negative for the virus.
It is unclear how the quarantine could affect Gilday's responsibilities, which include installing a new captain for the coronavirus-stricken aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt and trying to safeguard the rest of the fleet from coronavirus while deploying ships and squadrons for missions overseas.
Also according to Reuter's Idrees Ali, Chief of the National Guard Gen. Joseph Lengyel tested positive for coronavirus on Saturday.
