Report: White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows ignored coronavirus rules at wedding

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows hosted a large wedding for his daughter that appeared to violate a Georgia order and city of Atlanta guidelines aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19, an Atlanta newspaper reported Thursday.

Photos of the event show that social distancing guidelines were not followed during the May 31 nuptials at the Biltmore Ballrooms Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

About 70 guests, including U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, wore tuxedos and ball gowns but no masks at the indoor wedding, and photographs show groups of people clustered closely together in the same room throughout the evening, the newspaper said.

Gov. Brian Kemp’s orders at the time banned gatherings of more than 10 people. The governor later loosened some coronavirus restrictions.

Meadows did not respond to the newspaper’s requests for comment.

The weekend of the Atlanta wedding was a chaotic one in Washington, D.C., and

Dawn French has admitted she doesn’t fancy a turn on the Strictly dancefloor because she wouldn’t be taken seriously and fears she would end up being shot out of a cannon for entertainment.

Earlier this year, Curious City answered a question about where new COVID-19 cases were coming from in the Chicago area. At the time the answer was long-term care facilities, essential workers and possibly asymptomatic kids.
