Rudy’s son, 34, a Trump aide, has bug

New York Daily News - - NEWS - Chris Sommerfeld­t

Rudy Gi­u­liani’s adult son re­vealed Fri­day that he has tested pos­i­tive for COVID-19 — the lat­est White House staffer to come down with the re­s­pi­ra­tory virus.

An­drew Gi­u­liani, 34, who works as a pub­lic li­ai­son as­sis­tant at the White House, an­nounced his di­ag­no­sis in a tweet the day af­ter his father was seen sweat­ing pro­fusely dur­ing a bizarre press con­fer­ence in Wash­ing­ton, D.C.

“This morn­ing, I tested pos­i­tive for COVID-19,” the Gi­u­liani son (inset) tweeted. “I am ex­pe­ri­enc­ing mild symp­toms, and am fol­low­ing all ap­pro­pri­ate pro­to­cols, in­clud­ing be­ing in quar­an­tine and con­duct­ing con­tact trac­ing.”

It was not imi­ately clear if Gi­u­liani has re­cently been in con­tact with his 76-year-old father.

The el­der Gi­u­liani did not im­me­di­ately re­turn a re­quest for com­ment.

Rudy Gi­u­liani, who’s spear­head­ing Pres­i­dent Trump’s long-shot at­tempt to over­turn Joe Bi­den’s elec­tion, sweated so much dur­ing an un­ruly press con­fer­ence Thurs­day that he had to keep dab­bing his face with a nap­kin. Gi­u­liani did not wear a mask dur­ing the press avail­abil­ity, which was called to am­plify Trump’s base­less claim that Democrats rigged the elec­tion for Bi­den.

An­drew Gi­u­liani joins a long list of Trump White House staffers who have tested pos­i­tive for the virus that in­cludes chief of staff Mark Mead­ows and se­nior ad­viser Hope Hicks.
