Election Judge Dies of COVID, Worked Despite Positive Test

(LibertySociety.com) – When someone tests positive for COVID-19, they’re supposed to isolate themselves for several days. Unfortunately, some people do not do that and put others at risk. That’s exactly what happened in Missouri.

An election judge supervisor in St. Charles County tested positive for the virus. The individual then went on to work at a polling place on Election Day, putting workers and roughly 2,000 voters in danger. Now, we have learned the positive patient has died.

According to sources, the judge supervisor was told to quarantine for 14 days after testing positive but didn’t do it. Now, county officials are working to trace contacts and mitigate the spread of the virus. Nine poll workers have been told to get tests. Fortunately, health officials don’t think the supervisor was in contact with many voters directly. The news highlights the importance of following medical advice when possible.
