Stepien received the results of the test on Friday night and is suffering from mild flu-like symptoms.



Stepien travelled to Cleveland with the President and his team on Tuesday for the first presidential debate and was seen in close proximity to Hope Hicks, the President's top advisor who also tested positive.



He was among a group of senior Trump campaign staffers who were tested, but he is the only one whose results came back positive so far.



Deputy Campaign Manager Justin Clark's test results were negative.



He also attended debate prep sessions with former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, who also announced on Friday that she had tested positive.
