The head of President Donald Trump's legal team that is challenging the 2020 election results has tested positive for coronavirus, Bloomberg reported on Monday.

The Trump campaign on Friday tapped former adviser David Bossie to helm lawsuits in several states to contest the election outcome, which shows the president having been defeated by Joe Biden.

Bloomberg reporter Jennifer Jacobs reported that Bossie tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday. 

Several other officials in Trump's inner circle have recently contracted the virus, including Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. The two attended an election night watch party at the White House last week.

Bossie previously worked as a Trump campaign manager during the 2016 presidential election.
