Gen. David D. Thompson, the US Space Force’s second-highest ranking officer, has tested positive for Covid-19, the US Air Force said in a statement Wednesday. 

Thompson, who is the vice chief of space operations, took a test after a close family member tested positive for the virus.

The US Space Force is a newly formed military service branch structured within the Department of the Air Force.

The Space Force “trains, equips and maintains mission-ready space forces that provide missile warning, space domain awareness, positioning, navigation and timing, communications and space electronic warfare,” according to the US Defense Department.
