The Canadian government granted Uline billionaire COVID-critic Liz Uihlein an exemption to its mandatory 14-day quarantine for people entering the country. She and two companions flew into Canada on a private jet and held large meetings without masks, according to CBC News.
From The Guardian:
Uihlein and her husband have been called the "powerful conservative couple you've never heard of" for their extensive donations to the Republican party. In recent years, they have donated $100 million to conservative causes and politicians, including senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and failed senate candidate Roy Moore.
Uihlein has also been a vocal critic of lockdown measures in her home state of Wisconsin which she says places an undue burden on businesses.
"It's overhyped," she told the Guardian in April. "And I don't wish anybody ill will. You know I don't wish that, but I think it hurts certain ages in certain places and largely in a lot of parts of the world. In the country it's not as rampant as the press would have you make it."
As of Thursday, nearly 200,000 Americans are believed to have died from the virus, with 2.5 million active infections.
