“In consultation with my doctors, I checked myself into Morristown Medical Center this afternoon,” Christie announced in a tweet.
While I am feeling good and only have mild symptoms, due to my history of asthma we decided this is an important precautionary measure.
I am thankful for our hardworking medical professionals and look forward to coming home soon.

Christie, 58, has become the latest person from the US president’s inner circle to test positive for Covid-19. He had attended a Rose Garden nomination ceremony for Judge Amy Coney Barrett last weekend, and was part of a small team of top advisers who were helping Trump prepare for the debate with Biden.
President Trump himself was confirmed to have the virus on Friday and was airlifted to Walter Reed Medical Center, also “out of an abundance of caution,” according to White House.
