Barron Trump tests negative for coronavirus despite his parents testing positive

Barron Trump, 14, has tested negative for coronavirus after his parents tested positive for the disease and his siblings are being tested.

'Barron has tested negative and all precautions are being taken to ensure he's kept safe and healthy,' Stephanie Grisham, chief of staff to first lady Melania Trump, said in a statement. 

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID after the president's longtime close aide Hope Hicks received a positive test result. 

It's unclear what precautions are being taken for the president's youngest son.

Barron Trump is rarely seen in public as his mother, Melania Trump, is fiercely protective of his privacy.
