    HAHAHAHA...


    COVID Case Connected to Biden Campaign Stop Reported

    When the initial reports emerged that individuals attending President Donald Trump’s Minnesota rallies were testing positive for the coronavirus, Democratic condemnation was swift.
    But now, Minnesota officials report that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign has been linked to a positive case of the virus.
    In addition, several counterprotesters who attended a Trump rally have also tested positive, according to KBJR-TV.

    The one confirmed case connected with the Biden campaign came during the former vice president’s trip to Duluth on Sept. 18, even though Biden delivered his speech without a crowd present.
    From the Republican side, the state reported that three people, two from the same house, tested positive after attending a Sept. 30 rally in Duluth, while four new cases have been documented from a Bemidji rally on Sept. 18. All told, 12 people at the massive Bemidji rally have tested positive for the virus.

    Four counterprotesters at the Bemidji rally tested positive for the virus, officials said.
    The state also announced that three people who attended a rally for Vice President Mike Pence have tested positive.

    Both Minnesota Democrats and Biden’s campaign seized on the news of the positive tests from Trump’s rallies.
    “As Joe Biden has said, the presidency is the duty to care,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates told Politico.

    “Donald Trump has utterly failed in that duty, lying about this deadly threat to the American people from the very beginning while mismanaging the response — and willingly exposing his own supporters to the pandemic for his own optical gratification.”
    Ken Martin, chairman of Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, said in a prepared statement, “It was only a matter of time until the dangerous, mask-less campaign events staged by Donald Trump and Minnesota Republicans landed Minnesotans in the hospital.”
    Kris Ehresmann, the state’s infectious disease director, has noted that not all positive cases were necessarily contracted at campaign events.

    Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh echoed that sentiment. “Tying these cases to an outdoor event that occurred three weeks ago, where hand sanitizer and face masks were supplied, is a stretch,” he said.
    Prior to the candidates visiting the state, Democratic Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz had urged both campaigns to respect the state’s social distancing rules to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, according to KTSP-TV.

    “As the election nears, Minnesotans look forward to hearing from political candidates about their vision for our state and country,” Walz wrote.
    “That includes visits from both of your presidential campaigns this week. While we welcome the opportunity for Minnesotans to participate in democracy, we ask that your events comply with our state’s COVID-19 safety guidelines.”
    “Partner with us in the fight against COVID-19,” the governor concluded.

    As stated many times, which you obviously have not read, covid-19 doesn't know who is a Rep or who is a Dem. That's why people associated with both parties are susceptible to it. Even people not associated with either party can get it. This should not be surprising to anyone.
    I hope this clears it up for you.

    Re: Latest on the Corona Virus

    I just installed the free "COVID Alert" app onto my cellphone from the Gov't of Canada.

    It tells me about any COVID outbreaks in my area or areas that I might travel to.

    Download COVID Alert: Canada’s exposure notification app - Canada.ca

    Somehow its uses Bluetooth to ping other random people I pass by to collect data, analyze it and let me know what precautions I should take.

    Kamala Harris' Campaign Activities Grind To a Halt After 2 Positive COVID Tests

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign said Thursday that vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will suspend in-person events until Monday after two people associated with the campaign tested positive for coronavirus.
    The campaign said Biden had no exposure, though he and Harris spent several hours campaigning together in Arizona on Oct. 8.
    Harris was scheduled to travel Thursday to North Carolina for events encouraging voters to cast early ballots.

    The campaign told reporters Thursday morning that Harris’ communications director and a traveling staff member for her travel to Arizona tested positive after that Oct. 8 trip.
    Harris and Biden spent several hours together that day through multiple campaign stops, private meetings and a joint appearance in front of reporters at an airport.

    They were masked at all times in public, and aides said they were masked in private, as well.
    Biden and Harris have each had multiple negative tests since then.

    The former vice president is scheduled to attend an ABC News town hall airing live at 8 p.m. EDT.
    When President Donald Trump tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month, Biden said Trump was to blame.
    “Anybody who contracts the virus by essentially saying, ‘Masks don’t matter, social distancing doesn’t matter,’ I think is responsible for what happens to them,” he said during an NBC News town hall in Miami.
    Holding up a mask, Biden declared, “I view wearing this mask, not so much protecting me, but as a patriotic responsibility.”
    Much of the establishment media also attacked Trump over his COVID-19 diagnosis.
    “Sick and in isolation, Mr. President, you have become a symbol of your own failures,” CNN’s Jake Tapper said. “Failures of recklessness, ignorance, arrogance. The same failures you have been inflicting on the rest of us.”

    White House: Tennessee mask mandate 'must be implemented'
    JONATHAN MATTISE
    October 16, 2020, 7:33 pm

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The White House quietly told Tennessee early this week that “a statewide mask mandate must be implemented" to curb its growing spread of COVID-19, strong instructions that the White House and governor did not discuss publicly before the report emerged in a records request.

    The Oct. 11 state report for Tennessee, where Republican Gov. Bill Lee has let counties decide whether to require masks in public, first came to light in a records request by WUOT-FM. The Associated Press obtained the report from the Knox County Health Department afterward.

    "A statewide mask mandate must be implemented to stop the increasing spread among residents in rural and urban areas of Tennessee," the item in a list of recommendations states.
