WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House physician Sean Conley said President Donald Trump took a COVID-19 test on Saturday which showed that he is no longer a “transmission risk to others.”

Conley said in a statement that tests show there is no longer evidence “of actively replicating virus.”

The White House had no immediate comment on whether Conley’s statement indicated that the president had tested negative for the virus.
