A member of Antifa infected with coronavirus took part in protests and handed out food during a Popsicle party in Portland, Oregon, last week according to Fox News.
Members of the radical, often violent left-wing group began expressing concern on social media Saturday, the Post Millennial reported.
“Anyone who was at the Resistdance at the Red House last night — someone who was there just got a positive Covid test,” a member wrote in the “PDX Uprising” Telegram chat room, according to the outlet.
The infected individual was not named, but was identified as the partner of the person leading the Antifa group Blunt Bloc, which gives out edible marijuana products at protests, the outlet reported.
“My partner tested negative for covid less than 10 days ago but tested positive today which means I might be sick too,” a twitter account called Blunt Bloc posted, “Last night at Red House I used gloves/hand sanitizer before handing out any edibles/flower and maintained strict kitchen covid cleanliness when baking.”
The twitter account said that they are both quarantining and urged those who participated in the events to “wear ya damn mask” and get tested for COVID-19.
“Even though we are asymptomatic right now, quarantining is the right thing to do. Feel free to cashapp me/us and leave a note that says bday or covid relief.”
