The journalist also confirmed that neither went to the event with Trump or travelled on Air Force One.
However, they are expected to drive back to the east coast to avoid contact with other people, the familiar source told the reporter.
Last month, Guilfoyle attended Trump's campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Around the time of the rally, eight Trump campaign staffers tested positive for coronavirus and dozens of Secret Service members were told to self-quarantine after two agents also tested positive.
The virus takes anywhere from two to 14 days to incubate, so after the rally, officials said it was too soon to attribute a spike in Oklahoma virus cases to the rally.
Following the event, several of the campaign's top officials decided to quarantine for a week instead of going into the office, two sources told CNN.
