Trump's Mar-a-Lago Resort In Florida Partially Closed Over Covid Outbreak

Trump's Mar-a-Lago Resort In Florida Partially Closed Over Covid Outbreak”

Former President Donald Trump's Palm Beach club has been partially closed because of a COVID outbreak.

Perry Hooper Jr., a member of ALGOP's executive committee who was one of the officials who gave Trump the proclamation, said he was surprised by the Associated Press report on Friday that Mar-a-Lago was partially closed in wake of the outbreak. The two people familiar with the events confirmed that was the case; they were not authorized to speak publicly.

The club reportedly sent a letter to members about the closures maintaining that "the health and safety of our members and staff is our highest priority".

As AP reports, Trump's first exposure to the virus occurred in Mar-a-Lago when Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's communications director, Fábio Wajngarten tested positive in early March 2021. According to the Post, this is "the height of the social season and spring break, when Mar-a-Lago's Beach Club is especially busy".

In October 2020, after the former POTUS himself had been hospitalized with the virus, the White House became the epicenter of several COVID-19 outbreaks. A senior Brazilian official tested positive a year ago after spending time at Mar-a-Lago, where he posed for a photo next to Trump and attended a family birthday party.

In January, Palm Beach County issued a warning to Mar-a-Lago's management after a New Year's Eve party that violated an ordinance requiring employees and guests to wear masks.

The club was told future violations would result in fines of $US15,000 ($19,000).
