On Thursday of last week (4/7) it was announced that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tested positive for the coronavirus, the latest in a string of high-ranking officials to receive the diagnosis. Although the article (as well as TV news) boasted that she had been fully vaccinated and boosted, and will quarantine, they also (thankfully) pointed out that earlier there had been a gathering (they called it a huddle) with several other Senate and House Leaders behind Biden as he signed a bill. “None of them was masked at the time although Pelosi had a mask in her hand.” I was grateful for this call out.
