Pittsburgh officials ask COVID-infected Trump to stay away from their city

Pittsburgh officials to Trump on campaign appearance: Stay home

PITTSBURGH — According to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, the Trump campaign is considering traveling to Pittsburgh for a campaign event, not a rally, on Monday. President Donald Trump tested positive for coronavirus on Oct. 2, and since then at least 34 people tied to the White House have been infected by COVID-19, according to an internal memo from Federal Emergency Management Agency.

.....

Pittsburgh’s biggest elected officials, both Democrats, are urging the Trump campaign to avoid Pittsburgh, especially given his recent COVID diagnosis.

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald tweeted Wednesday night, saying “Thanks but no thanks” about the reported visit to Pittsburgh, and noted about Allegheny County’s ability to stem the spread of the virus after a spike this summer.

.....

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto also took to Twitter, quote tweeting the Haberman report and reminding followers that people should be quarantined for 14 days after they come into contact with someone who has coronavirus.

1. Good! That's my old home town. He'd be well advised to listen to those Pittsburghers. I wouldn't

be surprised if he came & nobody showed up!

2. Allegheny County (Pittsburgh) had 127 cases today

The most since July. And just two weeks after Trump’s local superspreader event.
