Poll Worker Knew COVID+ Status And Has Since Died

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports:

An election judge supervisor who had tested positive for COVID-19 broke quarantine, worked on Election Day and has since died, St. Charles County health officials said Thursday.

The supervisor, who was not named, received a positive test from a private lab on Oct. 30, the health department said. The lab told the supervisor to quarantine for 14 days.

But the supervisor “nevertheless failed to follow the advice” and worked Election Day at the county precinct at Blanchette Park Memorial Hall, near the intersection of Highway 370 and North Third in St. Charles. The county did not say when the supervisor died, nor the official cause of death.

Voters who used the precinct are being told to monitor for symptoms. Nine coworkers have been told to get tested.
