I think most everyone already inferred this based on the continual WH denials at the time, but Trump: - knew he was positive at the debate - went to a task force briefing - blamed military families for getting him sick Meadows says he was symptomatic at the debate Criminal
Per Guardian writeup of his book, Meadows says Trump tested positive before debate w/ Biden. โ€œStop the president from leaving,โ€ Meadows says Trump's doctor told him. โ€œHe just tested positive for Covid.โ€ Trump also held a briefing inside the day after. theguardian.com/us-news/2021โ€ฆ

This should be the end of Boebertโ€™s career in Congress. But it wonโ€™t be, because there is no bottom.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) plays a horrific death threat she received following Rep. Lauren Boebertโ€™s (R-CO) recent Islamophobic attacks on her. Warning: It's incredibly graphic.

No indoor space is likely safe without a significant exchange ventilation system designed for air quality with the virus in mind. Please, check with your employer and mask up if it is not in place. Kudos on the K95 in public!
Replying to @AltGovDoc
I went back to wearing a Kn95 everywhere thatโ€™s public other than work where we are spaced out a bit

While I understand & even share concerns over Omicron, the Delta variant is still reeking havoc & on the rise as is expected in winter. The US is at โ‰ˆ1,000 deaths/day & here we know the risks of even mild COVID #WearAMask #SocialDistancing #ventilation is key #VaccinateTheWorld

We've been here before. A @nytimes editorial celebrated the downturn of #influenza in 1918, declaring that year's #Thanksgiving a grand celebration and time of family joy. And then #flu swelled. Many said #Thanksgiving2021 marked a slowing of #COVID19 . Then came #Omicron .
