Donald Trump’s club is due to host events during the Republican Party’s spring retreat within a few weeks.
Donald Trump’s club in Florida, Mar-a-Lago , has been partially closed after cases of Covid among staff, US media reported on Friday (March 19).
The former Republican president has resided in Mar-a-Lago since leaving the White House on January 20. Donald Trump had had the Covid in early October and had been hospitalized for a few days. He and his wife Melania were secretly vaccinated in January.
“As some of our staff have recently tested positive for Covid-19, we are temporarily suspending services at the Beach Club and the Dining Room,” club management said in an email quoted by the Washington Post . The number of people infected is not specified.
Already a warning for not wearing the mask
Other services remain open in the club, according to management, according to whom “all appropriate measures in accordance with the directives” of the federal health authorities have been taken to disinfect the premises.
Palm Beach County sent the club a warning in January, after photos showed guests not wearing masks at a New Years party.
The club is due to host events at the National Republican Party Committee (RNC) spring retreat in Florida next month, according to the New York Times .
