President Donald Trump to go around his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey this Saturday and Sunday but won't quarantine for 14 days. The White House says he won't be following a regional travel advisory requiring visitors from hotspots to self-quarantine for 14 days.

On Tuesday Trump visited Arizona - a state experiencing a rise in Covid-19 cases that's on New Jersey's quarantine-needed list.

The quarantine requirement was announced by the governors of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut on Wednesday.

"The President of the United States is not a civilian," spokesman Judd Deere said, adding that anyone who is in close proximity to the president gets tested.

Deere said the White House had ensured Trump did not come into contact with symptomatic or untested individuals during his Arizona trip.

"Anyone travelling in support of the president this weekend will be closely monitored for symptoms and tested for Covid and therefore pose little to no risk to the local populations," he said.
