The agency reportedly hopes the change will inspire more people to comply with the guidelines. In a statement provided to Fox News, an agency spokesperson said no such changes had been finalized.

    Sources familiar with agency staffing said more than 130 Secret Service officers are quarantining either due to testing positive for COVID-19 or close contact with infected co-workers, The Washington Post reports. The outbreak has reached about 10 percent of the agency's core security team. "Being down more than 100 officers is very problematic," a former senior Secret Service supervisor told The Washington Post. "That does not bode well for White House Security." The Trump campaign made 10 stops between Nov. 2 and Nov. 3, the last two days of the election. The stops Nov. 2 required five separate groups, each...

    Her Activities Are ‘Essential’ Through her chief of staff, Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed her trip to a political rally constituted ‘essential travel,’ which therefore exempted her and her staff from her own quarantine order. Talk about the D.C. Swamp: Mere days after issuing a revised order regarding quarantines after travel to coronavirus “hot spots,” the mayor of the nation’s capital openly ignored the rules she established.While many will decry Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) for violating the travel restrictions, they shouldn’t feel surprised by her double standards. After all, Bowser and the Washington City Council have compelled D.C. residents with...

    With the Garden State tightening restrictions on indoor dining in response to recent spikes in COVID-19 cases, many are wondering if Philadelphia will be doing the same. The warning bells are being sounded by Pennsylvania’s health officials. “We are now seeing the highest case counts of the COVID-19 pandemic that we have seen since the beginning,” said Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine. --SNIP-- The protests, celebrations and demonstrations over the election and vote tallying are also a concern. Farley is urging anyone who participated — even while wearing a mask — to get tested for COVID-19 after seven days...

    Hawaii Free Press ^ | October 26, 2020 | Grassroot Institute
    The state Constitution says emergency proclamations expire after 60 days, but Hawaii now is in its eighth month of lockdown. Groups nationwide have filed lawsuits against the coronavirus emergency orders declared by their governors. Some have been successful. But what about Hawaii, whose governor just yesterday extended his state-of-emergency proclamation by another month, till the end of November? Can Hawaii’s seemingly interminable state lockdown, first ordered in March, ever be overturned in court? The Grassroot Institute webinar held Friday, Oct. 23, discussed the trends of lawsuits across the nation and whether they offer any hope for Hawaii. Our special guests...

    Dear Governor Pritzker, Because of you, restaurants are closing their doors permanently because they cannot survive another shut down. Because of you more homes will be foreclosed. More cars repossessed. More college funds drained. Hopes and dreams lost as we remain powerless in your hands. Because of you, another teen suicide was reported just yesterday because teens literally cannot handle the isolation. Do you know of these suicides? Or do you know and simply choose not to report on these because it doesn’t fit your political agenda? People like you, are why people like me, hate politics. It is never...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKRN) — Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear released a statement Sunday to the state saying that he and his family are quarantining out of an abundance of caution after being “potentially exposed to a person with COVID-19 late Saturday afternoon.” According to the Governor’s statement, a member of Beshear’s security detail drove the Beshear family on Saturday and learned of a positive COVID-19 test later in the day. The Beshear family was reportedly not in contact with anyone else following exposure

    Despite no study anywhere and ever, peer-reviewed, double-blind, or whatever has shown masks to be 100 percent effective in blocking the spread of COVID-19, the jackals in the Democrat Party and the legacy media (sorry for the redundancy) are blaming President Trump for contracting the Chinese Wuhan virus, saying he had it coming and invited it through his propensity for not wearing a mask in certain situations. These buzzards circling his bedside at Walter Reed Medical Center have long called his campaign rallies “super-spreader” events, unlike the riots and protests which are magically COVID-proof. No medical journal or institution has...
  • The CDC Just Changed How Long You Have to Quarantine After COVID-19

    One of the most important aspects of controlling the spread of COVID-19 is making sure that anyone who has been infected remains quarantined from others until the virus runs its course and is no longer able to pass it to others. Since the start of the pandemic, researchers have been attempting to pinpoint exactly how long individuals remain infectious after their first symptoms appear — to identify when they can safely return to their work, family, and lives without worry of infecting others. Initially, the CDC relied on coronavirus testing to determine whether the virus was still infectious. However, new...

    President Trump said he and First Lady Melania were awaiting coronavirus test results Thursday night after his close aide, Hope Hicks, tested positive. Trump during a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity Thursday night said he had “spent a lot of time” with Hicks, who had flown on Air Force 1 with him to the presidential debate Tuesday night and his Minnesota rally the following day. “I just went for a test and we’ll see what happens. Who knows?” Trump said during the interview. “It’ll come back later, I guess,” he added. Trump later said in a tweet that, “In...

    Does the Wuhan virus, which arguably escaped from a Chinese virology lab, supersede the rights guaranteed to American citizens under the U.S. Constitution? U.S. Federal District Judge William Stickman IV has ruled in a case brought before him that there is no pandemic exception to the U.S. Constitution and that the Bill of Rights cannot be trampled with impunity whenever there is a health emergency leftist ideologues try to exploit to impose their desired control over every aspect of our daily lives.

    Under the state’s revised policies, incoming travelers from California, Hawaii, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, and Ohio will no longer be required to quarantine for two weeks before entering the tri-state area. The Northern Mariana Islands have also been removed, while Puerto Rico has been added back to the list. "When other states and territories make progress fighting COVID-19, that's good for New York and while I am glad to see areas removed from the travel advisory list, it still remains far too long," Governor Cuomo said. "Make no mistake: We must continue to be New York Tough and stay smart. Wearing...

Yet another shock video out of Australia shows police enforcing coronavirus rules by arresting an elderly woman sitting on a park bench for not wearing a mask. “This is unlawful, on what grounds am I under arrest?” asks the woman. An officer then walks around the back of the bench and snatches her friend’s phone away, preventing her from filming the encounter. The woman is told that she is being arrested for failing to provide her name and address. ... Once a person has been targeted for not wearing a mask or violating any...

    Authorities in Quebec City, Canada have announced they will isolate “uncooperative” citizens in a coronavirus facility, the location of which remains a secret. During a press conference, Dr. Jacques Girard, who heads the Quebec City public health authority, drew attention to a case where patrons at a bar were ordered to wait until their COVID-19 tests came back, but disregarded the command and left the premises before the results came back positive. This led to them being deemed “uncooperative” and forcibly interned in a quarantine facility. “[W]e may isolate someone for 14 days,” Girard said during the press conference. “And...

    As the number of individuals hospitalized with COVID has dwindled over the past few weeks, the CDC finally recommended against 14 day quarantines for travelers. The above chart from the CDC shows the number of deaths related to the China coronavirus which has drastically reduced. Along with this the number and related to it are the number of hospitalizations which have also dramatically reduced in the past few months and weeks. Now only 3 people per 100,000 are hospitalized with the coronavirus. Apparently, the CDC finally recognized this and announced today that it was no longer necessary for travelers...

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday dropped its recommendation for travelers to quarantine for 14 days upon returning from trips overseas or out of state during the coronavirus pandemic. The CDC updated its guidelines on its website. Though the two-week recommendation was changed, the federal agency did caution travelers that they can still contract the novel coronavirus while traveling. “You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread COVID-19 to others," the agency warns. "You and your travel companions (including children) may spread COVID-19 to other people including your family, friends,...
