[Ed. – This is still not to be taken lightly.]
Mark Lamb, the sheriff of Pinal County, Ariz., revealed in a statement shared on Facebook on Wednesday that he received a positive test result after getting an invitation to meet with President Trump at the White House. Lamb was one of several officials invited to attend a White House meeting on law enforcement and the signing of Trump’s executive action on policing.
Lamb said that he received a mandatory screening from the White House and that the test came back positive.
“On Saturday, I held a campaign event, where it is likely I came into contact with an infected individual,” Lamb said, adding that he continued to be asymptomatic and would self-quarantine for two weeks.
Lamb added that as “a law enforcement official and elected leader,” he does “not have the luxury of staying home.”
