Two AIPAC conference attendees test positive for coronavirus

Two attendees of AIPAC’s recent Washington conference have tested positive for coronavirus, the organization announced Friday.

AIPAC held its annual policy conference earlier this week and had announced Wednesday that a group of attendees had come in contact with someone infected with coronavirus in New York before traveling to the conference. At the time of that announcement, AIPAC said it was not aware of any attendees testing positive since the conference.

That changed with Friday’s announcement that at least two attendees from New York have since tested positive. The pro-Israel lobbying group said it was coordinating the Westchester County Health Department and D.C. Health Department, which was working with New York and national health authorities.
