Homeland Security Offices In Seattle Shut Down After Employee Exposed To Coronavirus Victims Becomes Ill

Published

The Department of Homeland Security is opting to shut down a bunch of federal immigration and border agency offices in the Seattle area after an employee who visited a local nursing home where several individuals infected with coronavirus have died has become sick themselves.

This comes in the middle of a surge of cases of the virus here in the United States in places all along the West Coast, New York, Illinois, and Florida just to name a few.

Here’s more from the Washington Examiner:

“Late yesterday, DHS learned that an employee at the @USCIS Seattle Field Office started exhibiting flu-like symptoms four days after visiting the nursing home in Kirkland, Washington that has seen numerous COVID-19 cases,” DHS senior acting Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli announced in a string of Twitter posts Tuesday. “The employee had been coming to work in the intervening days between the possible exposure (Feb. 22) and becoming ill (Feb. 26). In an effort to contain the threat of potential spread & out of an abundance of caution, the @USCIS Seattle Field Office was ordered closed.”

Cuccinelli said all DHS employees who work out of the Seattle office — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, and Federal Protective Service — should work from home starting on Tuesday “if they are able.”

The Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington, has reported four coronavirus-related deaths within the past week, more than any other place in the country. The unnamed employee did not know at the time of the visit that residents there had contracted the virus and has been out of work sick since last Wednesday, according to Cuccinelli.

“Once it was determined that patients in the facility were diagnosed with coronavirus (my understanding is he learned this from the news), the employee’s family self-quarantined and alerted employers and other relevant officials,” Cuccinelli wrote.

At the time of this writing it’s still unclear as to how many other DHS employees may have been exposed to the virus or whether or not the employee who contracted the illness was still contagious while at work the previous week.

Lots of people are beginning to panic across the country, which is understandable given the severity of the illness, but a lot of the response is out of proportion. In order to stay safe, you must simply exercise common sense. Wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing. The basics from any sort of cold or flu season.

Here’s to hoping the spread of this virus is brought under control and folks begin to relax and get back to living life.

Save conservative media!

Schiff Knew About ‘Bounties’ On US Soldiers, But Stayed Silent & Did Not Tell Congress

Duuuddee!!

California Democrat Adam Schiff has to be one of the sneakiest, most conniving people in all of Congress – and that’s saying something, obviously. For example, the radically far-left congressman knew the Trump campaign never colluded with Russia, yet continued to push the conspiracy in order to continually target the president. Not only that, but the guy knew about “bounties” but said nothing. What is he thinking? Check this out, via The Federalist: Top committee staff for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, were briefed in February on intelligence about Russia offering the Taliban bounties in Afghanistan, but he took no action in response to the briefing, multiple intelligence sources familiar with the briefing told The Federalist. The intelligence was briefed to Schiff’s staff during a congressional delegation, or CODEL, trip to Afghanistan in February. Schiff, who has acknowledged President Donald Trump was never briefed on the so-called intelligence, has thus far refused to disclose that his staff was personally briefed. The revelation raises serious questions that Schiff is once again politicizing, and perhaps even deliberately misrepresenting, key data for partisan gain. Continued: Asked by a reporter Tuesday if he had any knowledge of the Russia story prior to the New York Times report, Schiff said “I can’t comment on specifics.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RepAdamSchiff/status/1255902443390599169?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1255902443390599169&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fhead-house-intelligence-adam-schiff-demands-google-youtube-twitter-step-authoritative-censorship-silencing%2F Here are clearer pictures of the letter… For your viewing pleasure, here’s some classic Schiff nonsense… https://twitter.com/kayleighmcenany/status/1177232817853517824?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1177232817853517824&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fhead-house-intelligence-adam-schiff-demands-google-youtube-twitter-step-authoritative-censorship-silencing%2F Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews wants Schiff to get into the 2020 presidential race.

NFL to Play ‘Black National Anthem’ Before All Week 1 Season Openers (Details)

The what what…what?

If there’s a “black national anthem,” does that mean there’s a “white national anthem?” Liberals would obviously say the national anthem is a white national anthem – but they’re just being ridiculous. How can the NFL possibly think this is a good move? How does this move the needle? Will MLB and the NBA soon follow? From ESPN: “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” traditionally known as the Black national anthem, is expected to be performed live or played before every Week 1 NFL game, and the league is considering a variety of other measures during the upcoming season to recognize victims of police brutality, a source familiar with the league’s discussions told The Undefeated on Thursday. The song would be performed before “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the source said. The NFL’s season opener is scheduled for Sept. 10, with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans.
