“This meeting is what’s happening in a lot of districts. They’re not following the guidelines. I would say, at most, that room should have had 40 people there,” Watts said of the gathering of about 69 people.
He continued, “The people in charge did not care.”
Watts noted that only about three people were masked throughout the duration of the meeting.
Scott McGraw, chairman of the 6th District Republican Committee, recalled the event having closer to 50 attendees.
The men heard varying estimates of those who have since gotten sick: Watts believes at least 10 have tested positive for the virus, and McGraw thought it was more like four to eight people.
