Despite the fact that much of the nation is beginning to dip their toes backs into the status quo, the threat of COVID-19 remains high throughout America.
This particular strain of coronavirus is highly contagious, and without a vaccine or proven treatment, it has become imperative that we keep our distance from one another – especially if we are showing symptoms of the illness.
But, for those who must continue to work, (such as our high level Washington officials), escaping exposure is a difficult chore.
The White House knows this all too well.
On Sunday, Kevin Hassett, Trump’s top economic adviser, admitted on Face the Nation, “it is scary to go to work.”
“I think that I’d be a lot safer if I was sitting at home than I would be going to the West Wing,” Hassett said. “It’s a crowded place. It’s, you know, it’s a little bit risky. But you have to do it because you have to serve your country.”
In addition to Miller, First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s personal assistant has also tested positive for the virus, leading many to wonder just how rampant the illness could be at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Furthermore, nearly a dozen Secret Service agents have tested positive, and another 60 or so are self-quarantining on account of the news.
