The coronavirus is no respecter of persons. After the Louisiana attorney general announced that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, he wisely decided to sit out a planned meeting with Vice President Mike Pence.
“Out of an overabundance of caution with the vice president coming to our state, I was tested for cornavirus [sic],” Attorney General Jeff Landry said in an email, according to Fox News. “Though experiencing no symptoms, I tested positive for COVID-19.”
As Fox reports, Pence is visiting Louisiana to help assure residents that they will have what they need to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
The vice president wrote in a tweet Tuesday:
Just landed in the Bayou State. Today I’ll be visiting @LSU to discuss reopening schools as well as the State Emergency Operations Center to deliver our message to the people of Louisiana: We will make sure you have what you need when you need it to combat the Coronavirus.
