White House coronavirus unit ordered to work from home after positive COVID-19 test

Source: The Hill

Members of a White House coronavirus task force were ordered to work from home after one person’s partner tested positive for the virus, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said in an email to staff.

The email said all staff on the supply chain sub task force who worked on a certain floor of a FEMA building in Washington, D.C., are required to telework starting Tuesday. The person, described by FEMA as a “partner” who is a federal employee, visited FEMA headquarters in Washington.

A FEMA spokesperson told The Hill that "at no time" did the person who tested positive "or any other known to have contact with them, come within six feet of any other Task Force principal for a prolonged period of time."

Admiral John Polowczyk, who is leading the sub task force, was listed as a recipient of the email, according to NBC. The unit he leads is tasked with acquiring, shipping and distributing equipment to combat the coronavirus. On Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) urged Trump to tap a supply director. The president told him to stop “complaining”.

1. Boy, this sure generates a lot of confidence, eh? Don't stop complaining, Mr. Schumer.

This idiot in the WH deserves every single charge of crimes against humanity, through his gross mismanagement of this whole thing. Deliberately ignored all warnings of this coming. All of them.

3. I thought Trump said warm weather would kill off the virus

By that logic they should be packed indoors in very hot rooms in the summer

4. What the hell does prolonged period of time even mean. I don't think you have to

tongue bathe someone to get the virus. According to what I've learned it only takes a second of proximity.

6. A "partner"?

In some type of corporate sense?

Why were the in the FEMA building if they did not work there?

7. A "partner"

I guess someone in an 'unmarried' relationship.
A lot of people now just live together as couples.

Until no one is left to resist.

12. It should mean a responsible press is done with him...

It won't though...the media asshats are still just as addicted to the car-crash ratings show of Trump World now as they were in 2015-2016...only now the son of a bitch is responsible for deaths of Americans in the THOUSANDS...nearly 3X the number of Osama Bin Laden.

Think. About. That.

Makes the mind reel...
