UAW Statement on the positive tests of the President, First Lady and staff

Detroit — Our thoughts and prayers are with the President, First Lady and White House staff for a quick recovery from COVID-19. UAW members know all too well the danger of this pandemic and we pray for the health and recovery of all who are infected, exposed or caring for family members.

Today’s news is a shocking reminder to all UAW members that this pandemic does not discriminate and we are all at risk. Please continue to follow all protocols including wearing masks, washing hands, sanitizing, limiting public exposures and continuing to self-report and quarantine when we experience symptoms or are exposed to someone testing positive.

The one common denominator for all of us, is that we are dependent on each other’s vigilance and commitment to protocols to limit exposure and contain this deadly disease.
