3 DNC workers test positive for COVID-19 after screening

Milwaukee named finalist for 2020 Democratic National Convention

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Organizers say three workers hired to help set up the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee have tested positive for COVID-19.

Daily screening for people working at the convention site, the Wisconsin Center, began last week in preparation for the Aug. 17-20 convention. Organizers wanted to identify positive cases before the workers entered the venue and were around others. The center district said in a statement that staff at the Wisconsin Center “followed the guidelines set forth by our client regarding daily health screens.”
