LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Health officials are asking everyone who attended a Lawrence protest last Sunday over the death of George Floyd to monitor for symptoms of the coronavirus after one of the participants tested positive.
The Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health said in a news release Friday that the infected person didn’t wear a mask while attending Sunday’s protest, which attracted thousands of people to the downtown.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the person’s sample was taken on Thursday, and Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health epidemiology staff was notified of the positive test on Friday.
The patient disclosed during the contact tracing and disease-investigation process that he was not wearing a mask.
