Yesterday, we reported that a person attending the CPAC conference in Maryland last week has tested positive for COVID-19.

Fox 5 DC reporter Stephanie Ramirez released a statement from MD Governor Hogan:

From @GovLarryHogan, notifying guests who attended CPAC that they could be at risk of acquiring the coronavirus.

•the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) took place @ National Harbor. •Those who attended or worked CPAC may be at some risk for acquiring COVID-19. •MDH notified @CDCgov, White House & Department of Health and Human Services.

WJZ CBS Baltimore tweeted that President Trump spoke at CPAC on February 29, which is in the same timeframe as the person with the virus reportedly attended the conference.

In a tweet, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisholm quickly squashed any rumors or concerns that President Trump “met with or was in close proximity” with the coronavirus victim who attended CPAC.

NBC News shared an official statement from President Trump’s physician regarding the coronavirus, President Trump, the First Family, and the entire White House Complex:

White House: “The President’s physician and United States Secret Service have been working closely with White House Staff and various agencies to ensure every precaution is taken to keep the First Family and the entire White House Complex safe and healthy.”

Unfortunately, according to a statement released last night by Republican Senator Ted Cruz, he did shake hands with the person who attended CPAC that has since tested positive for coronavirus.

In his public statement, Cruz made it clear that he is not experiencing any symptoms of coronavirus and that he feels “fine and healthy. Cruz clarified that he’s acting out of an “abundance of caution” because of his frequent interactions with his constituents. Senator Cruz said he will remain at his home in Texas until his 14-day self-quarantine has ended.

According to Cruz, anyone who interacted with him since CPAC should not be concerned about potential transmission.
