16 Positive Or Ill After Party At LA Trump Golf Resort

Los Angeles Magazine reports:

Although the coronavirus wasn’t yet being treated as a national emergency back on March 6, former Rancho Palos Verdes mayor Susan Brooks sent out a warning to the 65 guests planning to attend her 70th birthday party on March 8 at Trump National Golf Club.

She asked invitees feeling under the weather with any flu-like symptoms to “please stay home and rest,” adding, “This is especially important considering our age group. We love you and will miss you, and will celebrate together soon.”

A week later, she had to inform those who had attended the ’70s-themed disco party in the club’s ballroom that a man who’d been at the celebration had called to say he and his wife had tested positive for COVID-19. Now, five guests in all—including Brooks herself—have tested positive, while another 11 who have yet to be tested report being ill.
