Pence Had CEOs Remove Their Masks Before Meeting Him, Hours After His Press Secretary Got Coronavirus

Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Des Moines, Iowa, to meet with five food industry CEOs on May 5, only hours after his press secretary Katie Miller tested positive for the coronavirus.

The five executives were all wearing masks until a White House staff asked them to remove their masks before Pence would come to the table, notes The Intercept.

The Des Moines Register reports that before the meeting “staffers with gloves and masks took the temperatures of people who entered the building one at a time.”

However, human temperatures can rise for numerous reasons and illnesses, not just the coronavirus.
