On Monday, multiple sources reported that Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who is slated to take over from Mick Mulvaney as President Donald Trump's new chief of staff, has placed himself under a voluntary two-week quarantine after interacting with a coronavirus-infected attendee at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland.
Meadows was already not scheduled to begin his duties this week, according to CNN correspondent Kaitlan Collins.
