President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort in West Palm Beach, Florida reportedly will be closed for a cleaning on Monday after three visitors at the resort tested positive for COVID-19.

CNN reported on Monday morning that the resort undergo a deep cleaning throughout the day in response to the coronavirus cases, which consist of adviser to President Jair Bolsonaro Fabio Wajngarten, acting Brazilian Ambassador to the United States Nestor Forster, and an unnamed Trump campaign fundraiser attendee.

Mar-A-Lago’s beach club across the street from the main building will remain open, according to CNN.

Wajngarten and Forster have been in contact with Trump recently, as has Bolsonaro. The Brazilian president announced last week that he had tested negative for the coronavirus.

After news of Wajngarten’s case broke, Trump said last week that he wasn’t concerned about about the situation.

On Saturday, the President told reporters that he had taken a test for the virus the day before. Dr. Sean P. Conley, Trump’s physician, said in a memo later on Saturday that he had “received confirmation” that Trump’s test had came out negative.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
