Dr. Deborah Birx, who heads the coronavirus task force reportedly broke her own guidelines.
According to Town Hall:
“Travel may increase your chance of spreading and getting COVID-19,” the CDC website states. “CDC continues to recommend postponing travel and staying home, as this is the best way to protect yourself and others this year.”
If traveling by bus, train, or airplane where social distancing can’t take place or traveling with people you don’t live with, the CDC says the travel should be postponed.
“If the answer to any of these questions is ‘yes,’ you should consider making other plans, such as hosting a virtual gathering or delaying your travel,” the website states.
But it turns out that Dr. Birx, the White House Coronavirus Task Force Coordinator, traveled from Washington, D.C. to another property she has on Fenwick Island in Delaware. Not only did Birx herself make the trip but so did three generations of her family who live in two households, the Associated Press reported.
Birx traveled despite her home in Maryland being occupied by multiple generations of her family, including her elderly parents.
