White House gave New Jersey officials list of 206 people at Trump’s Thursday fundraiser events

The New Jersey Department of Health said in a joint statement with the Somerset County Department of Health that it reached out to all of the individuals who attended the events hours before the president tested positive for COVID-19.

The agencies said they received the list from the White House and the management of the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.

The state health department made attendees “aware of possible exposure and recommend that they self-monitor for symptoms and quarantine if they were in close contact with the President and his staff.”

County health officials are conducting interviews with staff members at the golf club and analyzing how much contact each had with the president and his staff and “providing public health recommendations accordingly.”

The statement notes that contact tracing is “ongoing,” and the majority of the club’s staff lives within Somerset County. New Jersey officials said they were told the federal government is also conducting contact tracing.

The state and county health officials recommended attendees who want to get tested wait at least five to seven days after Thursday.

“While the risk is low, a negative test earlier than that time cannot definitively rule out that COVID-19 will not develop,” the joint statement said.

But officials called on those “who are concerned that they were in close contact should quarantine for 14 days.”

A list provided to The Washington Post on Saturday by the Republican National Committee (RNC) included 207 attendees at Trump’s golf club, with about two dozen in a small roundtable inside with the president. Several of the small roundtable members took pictures with Trump.

The RNC distributed an email to attendees saying they should contact their doctors “if you or any of your loved ones

Prince Harry Just Gave Fans a Glimpse of His New Santa Barbara Home’s Stunning Decor

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan recently moved into a new home in Montecito, Santa Barbara, with their son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. And throughout their relocating—as well as the pandemic—the Sussexes have continued their charity endeavors both in-person and remotely, regularly filming videos and partaking in calls to support important causes.

This week, Harry appeared in a video supporting the Trailwalker Relay, a 100-kilometer event taking place virtually this year, organized with the Gurkha Welfare Trust and Oxfam. Wearing a smart black shirt and debuting a sleek hairstyle, Harry thanked all involved with the event from his new home.

The video also gave fans a peek into the home’s decor. Featuring lush greenery outside a large window, a tall house plant, and a chic neutral-colored chair, the interior design seems to be as warm and inviting as the message of his video.

Addressing viewers, Harry said, “Almost five years ago, I traveled to Nepal to meet families and see firsthand how the country was rebuilding after the devastating 2015 earthquake. Buildings, temples, homes, and entire villages had been completely demolished. But it was clear that despite everything the Nepalese faced, their spirit and their resilience never weakened. There was a clear sense of care and compassion for each other.

“With COVID-19, the world is being pitted against a new challenge,” the duke continued. “One that is devastating and destructive in its own right, and I am heartened to see that, once again, the Nepalese spirit is unwavering. In Afghanistan, I was honored to serve alongside The Royal Gurkha Rifles. These soldiers showed me what they believe

“At 3:28 am on Sept 6th 2020 Rue Rose decided that the baby shower thrown for her and mommy was too lit. She didn’t make the party but she managed to make the next day her birthdate!!!,” Shumpert, 30, wrote in the caption of a video of their baby girl, Rue Rose.

Just like her big sister Junie, Rue was welcomed into the world right on the bathroom floor.

“Now…when we buy homes, we always find a bathroom with great energy… but not in a million years would you be able to tell me we’d deliver both of our daughters in a bathroom without the assistance of a hospital! Our newest edition entered the world in the water and came out looking around and ready to explore,” the basketball player continued.

“A healthy child. A little sister. Another daughter. Black love wins….again. Welcome babygirl…we love you!,” Shumpert added.

Teyana Taylor previously mentioned that Erykah Badu was going to deliver her baby, but we’re not sure if she made it in time because baby Rue pulled up the day after the couple’s baby shower in Atlanta.
