Republican official sick with COVID-19 after White House party

Three days after attending the Hanukkah party on Dec. 9, he was so sick that he had to go to the hospital. "I think that, like many people, I felt as though I was invincible and felt that it wouldn't affect me and I don't have to wear a mask the entire time," he said. "The fact of the matter is, I was basking in the glow of a major White House event, to which I was invited, and three nights later I'm in the hospital in the emergency room."
