New Hampshire Reports No Coronavirus Cases Linked to Aug. 28 Trump Rally

NBC News – Boston:

Many attendees were not wearing masks, despite Gov. Chris Sununu’s order making them mandatory for gatherings of more than 100 people

No cases of the coronavirus have been linked to President Donald Trump’s rally in New Hampshire two weeks ago, the state health commissioner said Thursday, and only one person who attended Motorcycle Week in Laconia has since tested positive.

About 1,400 people attended the president’s rally in an airport hangar in Londonderry on Aug. 28. Many were not wearing masks, despite Gov. Chris Sununu’s order making them mandatory for gatherings of more than 100 people.

Sununu, like Trump a Republican, was asked a few days later “what did it make you feel” to see people ignoring the mandate, and responded that he felt frustrated, just as he does when he sees someone grocery shopping without a mask.

“I don’t want to single out one event makes me feel better or worse than another,” he said Sept. 1.

On Thursday, Health and Human Services Commissioner Lori Shibinette said officials aren’t aware of any attendees testing positive after the rally.
