Deep Cleaning Time: Mar-a-Lago is Closed

I mean, the place was becoming a club where the coronavirus could hang out and relax.

According to the Daily Mail:

President Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago club is being closed Monday for a deep cleaning after three people who attended events at the Winter White House tested positive for coronavirus.

The resort became ground zero in Trump’s world for the disease after the positive tests following a weekend of fundraisers, dinners and parties at the posh beach-side, members-only club.

The three known cases are Fabio Wajngarten, the communications secretary for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who attended a dinner last Saturday at Mar-a-Lago; acting Brazil Charge d’Affaires Ambassador Nestor Forster, who sat at Trump’s table during the Saturday night dinner; and an unnamed attendee who was at a Sunday afternoon fundraiser there.
