WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is confronting cases of the coronavirus in the White House itself, even as he pushes the nation to “reopen.”

In a potent new symbol of the risk, Trump addressed a Rose Garden audience filled with mask-wearing administration officials on Monday.

That was after two known cases of COVID-19 among staffers in one of the most-protected complexes in America sent three of the nation’s top medical experts into quarantine and Vice President Mike Pence into “self-isolation.” And a memo sent Monday directs “everyone who enters the West Wing to wear a mask or facial covering.”
