According to a new exclusive report from DailyMail “A total of 74 people on Martha’s Vineyard have tested positive for Covid-19 since former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday on Saturday.”
This is the the most cases on the island since April.
Tisbury health agent and boards of health spokesperson Maura Valley told DailyMail.com “At this time we’re not aware of any cases connected to the Obama party. It’s a little too early and the only way we’re going to know is through comprehensive contact tracing.”
Per the report:
Hundreds of people attended Obama’s birthday bash Saturday, flying in from around the country and congregating under tents where partiers danced, ate and drank the night away on his estate in Edgartown.
He gathered with friends Thursday at the Barn Bowl & Bistro, joined a larger kick-off celebration Friday at the luxury Winnetu Oceanside Resort.
Obama followed up his party with a brunch Sunday at Beach Road restaurant, dining under a specially-erected marquee beside the water in Vineyard Haven.
Martha’s Vineyard was already experiencing a new surge in cases when Obama, preparing to welcome 500 guests to his mansion, announced his party would be ‘scaled back’ amid criticism as the Delta coronavirus variant spread across the country.
Last Sunday, Anthony Fauci chastised those attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally “You’re going to get to do that in the future, but let’s get this pandemic under control before we start acting like nothing is going on,” Fauci said.

Sunday morning, conservative firebrand Candace Owens tweeted “BREAKING: I now personally know that (at least) two of the attendees at Barack Obama’s birthday were not vaccinated. ”
“I can confirm that vaccination was therefore NOT a requirement to attend his maskless bash. This is insane,” she added.

Obama is taking heat for his “birthday bash” as reports have indicated even his “scaled down” version was not exactly all that small and video shows many participants did not wear masks.
