PASSPORTY: Republicans Demand Negative COVID Test Result In Advance To Attend FL Spring Donor Retreat

The Washington Examiner reports:

The Republican National Committee is requiring attendees of the party’s spring donor retreat in Florida to get tested for the coronavirus and submit proof of a negative result as a condition for gaining entry to the event. Wealthy contributors to the RNC and other GOP causes are set to gather later this week in Palm Beach to hobnob with top party officials and hear from former President Donald Trump.

But according to an email the RNC sent to people planning to attend the retreat obtained by the Washington Examiner, participants must first “take a COVID-19 PCR or Rapid Antigen test and receive a negative result.” That information must be provided to the RNC in advance. Negative coronavirus tests are a prerequisite for attending the retreat, even for those who have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
