President Donald Trump will spend a “few days” at a military hospital after contracting COVID-19, the White House said Friday.

Trump was to depart the White House by helicopter late Friday for Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, a White House official said.

The official said the visit was precautionary and that Trump would work from the hospital’s presidential suite, which is equipped to allow him to continue his official duties.

"The president’s going to be in relative isolation and relatively sequestered," Trump physician Dr. Ronny Jackson told Newsmax. "He’s still got to be president. He’s still going to be surrounded by those key people at the White House that have to be there. They’re going to make it essential personnel only. But you know as well as I do, he’s going to have to have interactions with his chief of staff, with his press secretary, his military aide, and his nationals security adviser, do those kinds of things." 

Earlier Friday the White House said Trump remains “fatigued” and had been injected with an experimental antibody cocktail for the virus that has killed more than 205,000 Americans and spread to the highest reaches of the U.S. government.
