U.S. Senate Hopeful Greenfield Cancels Tour Events Amid Covid-19 Concerns

The campaign tour events that were scheduled for Wednesday for U.S. Senate hopeful Theresa Greenfield were cancelled due to covid-19 related concerns. Greenfield was set to hold a small business round table here in Fort Dodge Wednesday. She also was scheduled to tour small businesses in Carroll and Storm Lake as well. Communications Director for Greenfield’s campaign Sam Newton released the statement below.

“We’ve learned that some members of our campaign came into contact with someone last week who subsequently tested positive for coronavirus. While masks and social distancing measures are required at all of our in-person events, our campaign is temporarily pausing our RV tour, including today’s events, at the advice of medical professionals in order to take appropriate precautions to ensure we protect the health and safety of Iowans and our team. Theresa regularly gets tested for COVID-19 and recently tested negative, but she’s getting tested again to be safe. She is eager to get back on her GOTV tour once we get test results and we’re absolutely certain it’s safe to do so, which is hopefully very soon.”
