Fox News anchors quarantine after virus exposure on flight

27 Octobre, 2020, 16:30 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Fox News has confirmed that it is dealing with a coronavirus outbreak that could sideline members of its election night team.

In a memo to staffers Monday, Wallace and Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said any employee testing positive "will be quarantining and following all of our mandatory guidelines before they enter any of our buildings".

Among those to quarantine are Wallace, Baier, MacCallum, Dana Perino, and Juan Williams, who were all tested by the network and the Commission on Presidential Debates before they attended the debate.

The exposures reportedly included top political anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, who host the 6 and 7 p.m. ET weekday time slots.

The Daily Beast spoke with another staffer who suggested the exposure had thrown the network's plans for election-night coverage "into chaos". "And we'll be in preparation for Election Day". "Only those employees who are critical to that night's production will be permitted" inside the network's NY headquarters on November 3, the memo obtained by Variety read.

Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi last week said that the death count could go up to 600 a day owing to poor social distancing. The country is now grappling with another wave of COVID-19, and is registering a coronavirus related death every four minutes.

The jet had been chartered by Fox News to take attendees at Thursday's presidential debate back to NY, where the network is headquartered. The report found that Fox was one of the first to resume in-studio programming and production despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

A source familiar with the situation told The Daily Beast it was weird for so many staffers to be sent to Nashville, Tennessee, for last week's presidential debate when hardly any other networks had a large presence there.

Wallace and the hosts were reportedly exposed to an individual who later tested positive for COVID-19 when they flew together on a private plane from the debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden on Thursday. Wallace was reportedly on last week's charted plane. But NBC had nearly no footprint.

According to the newspaper, everyone on board the flight tested negative in rapid tests conducted before the debate and immediately after returning to NY. "In the elevators, everyone's good about masks", one source told The Daily Beast.
