They just are NOT gonna adhere to the CDC suggested guidelines to hold safe events….
State and local officials are sidelined while their cops provide escorts and protection for Washington based political Trump family members and Federal officials campaigning for a sick Donald Trump do campaigning around the country….

Pence made an appearance at an outdoor event in Boulder City, Nev., on Thursday after the campaign agreed to limit attendance to a state-mandated capacity of 250. The Secret Service and campaign were supposed to enforce a mask mandate, but many attendees didn’t wear face coverings.

He has since tested negative.
In Naples, Fla., where former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi will speak at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post on Thursday, local health officials were unaware of the event until they were contacted by POLITICO. Lewandowski on Friday told CBS he was self-isolating after attending a Trump Minnesota fundraiser….
