WASHINGTON, DC — The assistant commandant of the Marine Corps has tested positive for the coronavirus, days after he and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff were in a Pentagon meeting with a Coast Guard leader who was infected with the virus.

The Marine Corps says Gen. Gary L. Thomas tested positive for Covid-19.

He attended a meeting of the Joint Chiefs on Friday, when the commandant was not able to be there.

U.S. officials said none of the other top military leaders in the meeting, including Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, have so far tested positive.
