Young Jewish Conservatives Put to Rest Fears Over Coronavirus Case at CPAC

The Young Jewish Conservatives held their 9th annual Shabbat at the 2020 Conservative Political Action Conference, which took place in National Harbor, MD from February 26-29. The program took place at the Residence Inn, across the street from the Gaylord National Convention Center where most CPAC events were held, on Friday night and Saturday. Since the conference concluded, news reports revealed that one CPAC attendee had contracted the coronavirus. That individual was found to have attended the Shabbat program both days, but the group insists there is no cause for alarm and that they took all the right steps as soon as they learned of the attendee's presence.


“The CPAC attendee diagnosed with coronavirus is a long-time friend of Young Jewish Conservatives who attended the YJC Shabbat program," the organization said in a statement provided to Townhall on Tuesday. "Immediately upon learning of the diagnosis and working in conjunction with CPAC organizers, we notified all Shabbat attendees and advised them to seek medical guidance based on the assumption that they may have had direct contact with this individual."

"Most of our attendees have been advised by health authorities that absent any symptoms they do not need to self-quarantine, although a minority have chosen voluntarily to do so," the statement continues. "We thank ACU for promptly and professionally sharing all relevant information with us so that we are in a position to convey the most up-to-the-minute accurate information to our Shabbat attendees. We send our best wishes to our friend for a speedy recovery, and wish the very best to his family on this Purim holiday.”


Except for the attendee in question, no one who attended the Shabbat program is reported to have experienced any coronavirus symptoms.
