Former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, has been partially closed after staff members tested positive for the coronavirus, according to multiple reports.
An email was sent to members saying that service had been temporarily suspended in the club’s dining room and at its beach club because some staff members had recently tested positive for coronavirus. It also said the club had undertaken “all appropriate response measures,” including sanitizing affected areas,” and that banquet and event services remain open.
“The health and safety of our members and staff is our highest priority,” it read.
The Florida Department of Health did not immediately respond to a phone call and email.
Trump moved to Mar-a-Lago after leaving Washington in January, and has spent the weeks since then laying low, golfing, dining with friends, meeting with Republican party leaders and plotting his political future as he considers running again in 2024.
Trump was hospitalized with COVID-19 last fall and has since been vaccinated against the virus.
The club in Palm Beach has been a flurry of activity in recent weeks, hosting events and fundraisers, including one to benefit rescue dogs. Trump unexpectedly dropped by the event last week.
