President Donald Trump apparently ended his COVID-19 quarantine on Wednesday and has returned to work in the Oval Office.
Brian Morgenstern, assistant director of communications for the White House, told reporters that Trump would be briefed on the status of negotiations on coronavirus stimuli and Hurricane Delta.
Trump's return to the Oval Office was first noticed by reporters who spotted a Marine at the door, which is seen as a sign that Trump is in the office.

"Mark Meadows is with Trump in Oval and Dan Scavino pro White House. The president came from the colonnade that kept him away from the corridors of the west wing where employees still work," said Jennifer Jacobs of Bloomberg News.
"Trump went to the Oval Office because of objections from aides who wanted him to remain isolated at the residence while he recovered from the coronavirus," Peter Baker, chief White House correspondent, told the New York Times.
