      There are facilities at the White House....however for really serious cases it's Walter Reed. Anyway if Trump is in isolation in a month from now...that is not good.

        Would be very hard to imagine that it has not been so for at least 50 years.

          Meanwhile...

          Well we've got this, though it's a bit cryptic ("fatigued but in good sprits").

            Via pool report, Trump is going to Walter Reed. Two sources familiar with the plan say he's expected to undergo tests.

                Ah yes, the Pandemic Pandamonium . . . or is it a Pandamonium Pandemic?
                Whatever it is, I suspect Pandas are responsible for this.

                  President Trump is expected to be taken to Walter Reed Medical Center Friday afternoon according to two administration officials, less then 24-hours after testing positive for the deadly coronavirus.

                  The president’s condition has worsened on Friday, officials said, though they maintained he remained “in good spirits.” The president is struggling with a low-grade fever, a cough and nasal congestion, among other symptoms, two people familiar with his condition.

                    NY Times is reporting that "the President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days."

                      Trump Has the Coronavirus. What Risks Does He Face?

                      Older men have a greater chance of becoming severely ill from Covid-19, though many recover quickly. Experts say the next week will be crucial.

                        A cautionary tale.

                          Meanwhile, some things go right ahead as if he were totally ok. I get phone calls from politicians fairly regularly (and I hang up on them immediately, as I do all recorded calls soliciting everything imaginable). But I was a bit taken aback a couple of minutes ago to get a call that started "This is Donald Trump and I'm running . . ." in a loud, clear voice. I've no idea when it was recorded, but what I was listening to was presumably intended to sound live, but it clearly was not. Under the circumstances, it was a bit weird. Of course, I hung up reflexively without listening to his message. (I would have done the same for Joe Biden or any of the local politicians or political organizations that call from time to time, especially at this time of year.)

                            No. A presidential candidate being incapacitated on election day is of no particular significance. The next term doesn't start until January.

                            But it could get complicated if he wins the election and is still incapacitated in December when the electoral college is about to submit their votes. Do they still submit votes for Trump/Pence? Does Pence rise to the top of the ticket and choose a VP? Does the Republican party choose a VP for him? I don't know how all of that works.

                              You don't think that would be a wild card in the election? Would the polls have any meaning with that much uncertainly in the air as folks go to the polls?

                                It is actually rather not clear at all from what I read today.
