(UnitedVoice.com) – High-level GOP officials and the White House are on high alert after news broke regarding a CPAC attendee infected with the coronavirus.
New: The CPAC attendee w/ coronavirus didn't just have general admission, but a higher-level ticket which gave him special access. CPAC staff are in direct contact w/ the patient & are relying on his memories, as well as their own, to reconstruct his experience at the conference.

Because this as-of-yet undisclosed person had access to high-profile individuals, newly-appointed White House Chief of Staff, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) have gone into voluntary quarantine.
Gaetz was present with President Trump last Saturday at Mar-a-Lago, where dinner was prepared for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) also had a photo taken with the CPAC attendee infected with the virus. Collins shook hands with Trump on the tarmac in Georgia after the event and also joined Trump in touring the CDC in Atlanta.
According to White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, the president and his closest advisers hadn’t been tested for the coronavirus as of Monday morning.
