COVID Testing Lab Refuses to Test Misinformation Peddler Candace Owens

During the first two waves of the pandemic, a number of prominent Conservatives, who pushed misinformation, avoided getting sick. Now in wave 3, though, many anti-vaxxers are contracting COVID. A number of Conservative radio hosts have died from the disease.

And recently, it was rumored that Conservative pundit Candace Owens had contracted the illness. While the host denied that she was sick, she did try to book a test. The testing site she contacted, in Aspen, Colorado, is refusing to give her a test.

The owner of the facility, Suzanna Lee, laid out her reasoning in an email. She wrote:

“I’ve just learned of this testing request and as the owner of this business am going to refuse this booking and deny service. We cannot support anyone who has pro-actively worked to make this pandemic worse by spreading misinformation, politicizing and DISCOURAGING the wearing of masks and actively dissuading people from receiving life saving vaccinations.”

Lee continued, “My team and myself have worked overtime, to exhaustion, upaid and underpaid this past year, spending our own capital to ensure that our community remains protected. It would be unfair to them and to the sacrifices we have all made this year to serve you.”
