The security office head, Crede Bailey, whose office handles a number of duties, including approving certain security clearances, coordinating with the Secret Service and handling credentials for people to be able to come onto the White House grounds, was taken to the hospital in late September, the administration official said.

Bloomberg News previously reported on the situation.

Mr. Bailey's case is not seen as connected to an outbreak that officials believe stemmed from the Sept. 26 events at the White House honoring Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump's nominee to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

Still, the case, and another positive test involving the No. 2 official in the Marine Corps that was revealed on Wednesday, is an additional reminder of how pervasive the virus has become at the most famous, and protected, address in the country over the past several weeks.

The corps announced the positive test of Gen. Gary L. Thomas, the assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, in a statement. General Thomas was among the group of senior military leaders who have been quarantining after they were exposed to the virus during a visit to the White House on Sept. 27 for a reception for Gold Star families. The event was also attended by Mr. Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump.

On Tuesday, the Pentagon announced that Adm. Charles Ray, the vice commandant of the Coast Guard, had tested positive. Admiral Ray also attended the White House reception, Defense Department officials said.

Nearly every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is now in quarantine in their homes or in other locations, officials said, after having contact with people who have tested positive.

We don't know that Mr. Bailey is a science denier.  He may be the innocent victim of science deniers.

I disagree.  I live in a red county, and most people I know are wearing masks in public.  They're not denying science regarding the virus.  A few are.  Most are not.

And they are going to have a ''rally'' or whatever they want to call it tomorrow night at the White House. Stupid is as stupid does.

And a ''rally'' Sanford FL on Monday, more stupidity.

I really feel sorry for Mr. Bailey and wish him the best.

Is that the one where shithead DeSantis is going to fill the stadium to capacity?  A 65,000 person capacity, I believe?

I don't know where it's going to be held in Sanford. I don't believe that there is any venue that can hold anywhere close to 65,000 people.

I could be way off.  Maybe it's 6500.  I don't recall where I saw that.  I must have confused it with another possible future event/venue.

I just looked it up, it's going to be held at the Sanford airport.

Pretty sure I have no problem with right wing radicals infecting other right wing idiots.

The rest of us just have to mask, wash and shelter in place for awhile.

So he could have caught it anywhere

And you, Mr. Trump, are a straight-up nut-ball.

His blood is not a vaccine, but he could donate plasma just as Tom Hanks and his wife did because of the antibodies in it.

Unless I'm mistaken... we still don't how or if immunity works for Covid-19. I suppose that the labs that are working on a vaccine must know, but I haven't seen anything in the public domain.

It is still being studied, but people who have recovered can donate.  The plasma will be studied and incorporated to see if it is a viable solution or not.

Trump is doing a great job of killing off the GOP. Better even than the asteroid 65 million years ago.

Kavika wished him the best above.

Well-wishes are great, but I prefer action.  Preventive measures taken by the White House to minimize the number of infections would be more useful.  Masks are not required, but should be.

I totally agree and cannot for the life of me understand why in the hell there are having this rally at the White House tomorrow with 2,000 people. This is a disaster just waiting to happen. Did they learn nothing from turning the WH into a COVID hot spot? Rhetorical question of course they didn't. 

Yesterday the US had 56,191 new COVID cases with 952 deaths. It looks like today we hit the 60,000 new COVID cases and 900 deaths.

They were never really useful to begin with, other than for emotional comfort.

He chose to accept the position.  Now he is reaping the repercussions.  He chose not to take common sense measures to protect himself because Trump would not have approved.  He brought this on himself by not remembering how and why Cain died.  I will save my compassion for his family unless they are anti masker advocates and the innocent people he may have infected, excluding anyone who attends superspreader events.
