UPDATE: The staffer who tested positive for COVID-19 is Katie Miller, wife of Stephen Miller.
Here she is NOT wearing a mask while talking to reporters at Pence's PPE delivery event Thursday:

Twitter had thoughts:
I guess I don’t need to comment on the irony of Stephen Miller’s wife having COVID after he used it as an excuse to close the borders

Stephen Miller's wife has tested positive for coronavirus. Further proof that it jumps from bats to humans.

FWIW, Stephen Miller is probably fine — there’s no reported human to vampire transmission

Uh oh. A second White House staffer has tested positive for coronavirus. This is someone who was on Pence's flight to Iowa. Maybe they were part of the photo op yesterday distributing supplies?
And Trump's reaction is that he's mad HE might contact it.
