More than 200 people attended the Sept. 26 event at the White House Rose Garden where President Donald Trump announced his nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The festive function – which drew high-profile public officials, religious leaders and other dignitaries – has since been called a likely coronavirus “superspreader” after nearly a dozen people in attendance later tested positive for COVID-19.
Among attendees testing positive are Trump and first lady Melania Trump; former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; former counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah; Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C.; Notre Dame President Rev. John Jenkins; pastor and evangelist Greg Laurie; and freelance photographer Al Drago.
