Mike Pence Shook Hands With Classmates of Student Under Coronavirus Quarantine

(TMU) — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis declared a public health emergency this week after two people in the state tested positive for COVID-19.

One of the sick residents is an adult with no clear link to the countries where the virus is widespread, leading some to believe there are many other cases and carriers in the state that have not yet been tested.

Health officials are also putting contacts of these patients into quarantine as a matter of precaution because this virus is so contagious. One of the people in quarantine for this reason happens to be a student whose classmates shook hands with Vice President Mike Pence last week.

On Friday, just days after being named by Donald Trump as the head of the outbreak response task force, Pence was at Sarasota Military Academy in Florida shaking hands with cadets and posing for photographs.

Of course, the student who is at risk was in quarantine and not at the event with Mike Pence, but a coronavirus patient was mere points of unprotected contact away from the President of the United States.
