It is not known whether the employees who tested positive for the coronavirus worked at the White House or if they had recent close contact with President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.
Both Trump and Pence get tested for the disease regularly but have not tested positive so far. However, Trump said this week that he would switch from having weekly to daily tests following the new cases.
The news comes as President Donald Trump revealed on Friday that Mike Pence's press secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive for the coronavirus . Miller, who is the wife of Stephen Miller, Trump's senior adviser, and primary speechwriter confirmed her diagnosis with NBC News, adding that she was asymptomatic.
Ivanka Trump's personal assistant has also tested positive for the coronavirus, CNN's Kaitlan Collins reported.
This follows a US Navy member who serves as one of Trump's valets who tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday, according to CNN.
The string of recent diagnoses in the White House raises concerns about the president's possible exposure to the virus, which has since infected more than 1.3 million people in the US, according to Worldometer.
