It was reported last week that 11 members of the US Secret Service currently have COVID-19, according to Department of Homeland Security documents.
The documents state that, in addition to the 11 active cases, 23 members of the Secret Service have recovered from COVID-19 and an additional 60 employees who are self-quarantining. In addition, there are two cases among White House staffers close to both Donald Trump and Mike Pence.
Yahoo News reported last week that large events with unmasked attendees in close quarters are held on a regular basis at the White House, including in the Oval Office. Many Secret Service employees who work on the White House grounds do not wear masks. Trump and Pence have refused to wear masks.
