Ivanka Trump has emerged publicly for the first time since her personal assistant was confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19.
The first daughter was pictured leaving her home in Washington, D.C. on Friday morning, covering her mouth and nose with a black face mask decorated with an American flag pin.
Ivanka, 38, matched the protective gear to her outfit and opted to wear a $ 129 all-black Kenneth Cole jumpsuit, and she completed the ensemble with some $ 750 black and white Chanel ballerinas.

Bare minimum: The 38-year-old didn’t have a handbag, but was seen holding two iPhones in her right hand when she left the house she shares with husband Jared Kushner and their children
The black jumpsuit had long sleeves and trousers, a zip collar and a tie ribbon at the waist to accentuate the baggy design.
As for accessories, Ivanka kept things simple, without her usual handbag, and instead with just two iPhones in her right hand when she came out of the house she shares with husband Jared Kushner, 39, and their three children.

Shortly after being seen outside her home, Ivanka arrived at the Coastal Sunbelt Produce Center, where she toured the facility and heard about a program organizing donations for food banks and nonprofits amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Ivanka’s appearance comes a week after her unnamed personal assistant was confirmed to have tested positive for the coronavirus, adding to the growing number of White House staff infected with the virus.
According to CNN, the assistant hadn’t been near Ivanka for several weeks prior to her positive test – and both Ivanka and Jared, who work as special advisers to the President, had tested negative for COVID-19.
Eleven members of the United States Secret Service recently tested positive for COVID-19, while 23 others recovered from the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

According to Department of Homeland Security documents, obtained by Yahoo News, about 60 employees of the agency charged with protecting President Donald Trump and other senior government officials were quarantined because of last week’s outbreak.
Ivanka has kept an incredibly low profile for the past six weeks – and the Friday morning sighting is the first time the mother of three has left in public since April 28, when she attended a small business event at the White House.
Previously, the first D.C. daughter had left to quarantine with her three children, Arabella, Joseph, and Theodore, at her father’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where Passover was reportedly spent.
Ivanka and her children bypassed D.C.’s residence permit that banned non-essential travel in mid-April when they traveled to the President’s golf club; she was not seen in D.C. for several weeks until she returned for the small business event.

Changing her tune: During the event, both Ivanka and her father, President Donald Trump, chose to go without a face mask or cover
Project: Prior to the April 28 event, Ivanka had spent time with her children quarantined at her father’s New Jersey golf club – but before that she found time for a sewing project
Creative: Ivanka and her daughter Arabella sewed their own masks at home – and the first daughter urged people to follow ‘CDC guidelines’ when it comes to wearing facials
During the event, Ivanka was not wearing a face mask – and neither was her father – but the first daughter went to social media in the days before her departure for Bedminster to post a photo of herself and daughter Arabella wearing masks they had made themselves .
She revealed that she made her daughter’s mask, while eight-year-old Arabella made one for her mother.
In the reports, Ivanka added that “fabric face coverings are useful in public,” but noted that “there is no substitute for social distance.”
Then she urged her followers to “follow the CDC guidelines to wear a mask or face covering in public.”
