The Courier – Journal in Louisville, Ky reported this on March 15th.
Two attendees of the Speed Art Museum’s March 7 fundraising ball have tested positive for COVID-19, potentially exposing a swath of high-ranking Kentucky and Louisville officials to the virus. Attendee Mary Moss Greenebaum, the leader of the Kentucky Author Forum, confirmed Sunday afternoon (3/15) she has tested positive for COVID-19.
Guests at the event included Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth.
Beshear, Fischer, and Yarmuth all self-quarantined and eventually tested negative for the virus.
Paul, who declined self-quarantine or testing then, is now confirmed positive for COVID-19.
Because of Rand Paul’s reckless behavior, the entire U.S. Senate has now been exposed to COVID-19 in one fell swoop. Some will note that the governor, mayor, and congressman who acted responsibly are Democrats, and that the negligent senator — who claims to be a Dr. — is a Republican.
