Washington state poker night linked to nearly 100 COVID-19 cases

Source: The Hill


BY JOHN BOWDEN - 04/29/21 01:31 PM EDT

An event held by a Washington state-area Eagle's Club is being blamed for nearly 100 cases of COVID-19 in the community that cropped up in the weeks since it took place.

Local news affiliate KREM reported that 95 confirmed COVID-19 cases have been linked to the Republic, Wash., Eagle's Club event held on April 9, which Facebook posts described as a dinner and poker night for new members of the town's Eagle's Club.

The organization confirmed on Facebook days after the event that one attendee had tested positive for the virus, and urged others to take precautions as they saw fit. Some attendees apparently told KREM that the event was held specifically in protest of the state's COVID-19 guidelines.

"We've just been notified that a member who was here last Friday evening, has tested positive for COVID we wanted you to be aware, so that you can take any precautions you feel are necessary and know that we are doing the same," wrote the Eagle's Club on Facebook.

1. Has anyone died?

Since they did it in protest, I'd like to see their asses sued! Is stupidity a legal defense??

2. "Held specifically in protest of the state's COVID-19 guidelines." No one was vaccinated???

Was this a group of people (idiots) who were unvaccinated in order "to own the libs???"


Asking for a friend...

3. Guess they got their bluff called.

You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done

4. I just heard, unsurprising, that the main unvaxxed group

is white, GQP, fundamentalist males. If that whole group disappeared from the face of the earth, I wouldn't shed a tear.

10. Loren Culp

Republic is the home of this moron who wants to be king of Washington State any way he can con his way into office......any office. He is after fellow Republican Dan Newhouse's seat now since Culp lost his bid for Governor to Jay Inslee. He is so nuts I'll actually vote for Newhouse.

If he actually gets elected I have no doubt he'll be best buds with MTG, Boebert, Cruz and the rest of the Clue Less Klan.

I'm not surprised the people in Republic who made this ass clown Sheriff are the subject of this article.

14. Things Are Looking Up

I'm hoping that the Covid deaths start hitting the non-masking, non-vaccinated MORONS, and hitting them hard.

If instead of mourning all the tragic losses from 2020, we can reach a point where those deserving of death, suffer for their incompetence, then 2021 will be much better.

16. Most of those types at my office got it.

All the ones who thought it wasn't a big deal, all the trumpers, got sick. 12 people at one office, 6 at another, 3 that I know of at another. Suddenly, they are wearing masks around the office. There is one guy, however, that I really wish would get it. He struts into the office with no mask, when I say to put on a mask, he says "NO!"
