former President Barack Obama As reported by various international media, it will celebrate its 60th anniversary this weekend with a huge party at its Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, property.
But the party, planned for an alleged 475 guests, has drawn some criticism – particularly from supporters of the political right – amid the spread of the Delta version, currently the biggest campaigner of the coronavirus.
As per reports, the event will be held outside and everyone must be fully vaccinated and submit negative test results before admission. A “Covid Coordinator” will oversee the party. It is not known whether face mask will be mandatory or not.
The names reportedly chosen by Obama, who will turn 60 on Wednesday (4), include directors Steven Spielbergmilf actor George Clooney and presenter Oprah Winfrey.
President Joe Biden A White House spokesman said he would not attend, but “hopes to meet former President Obama soon and welcome him to the club of more than sixty.”
Martha’s Vineyard, Deux County, is not currently considered a high-risk area for coronavirus contamination. But last month a cluster of cases among people vaccinated on the neighboring island of Provincetown prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to resume its advice to use masks indoors.
A worrying rise in cases in recent weeks – especially among the uninsured – has led to controversial changes to some safety protocols in the United States.
