Reopen Maryland Co-Founder Says He Has COVID-19, But Won’t Aid State’s Contact Tracers

A co-founder of the Reopen Maryland movement said on social media he has been infected with the coronavirus but will not aid state health officials in contact tracing efforts.

Tim Walters, a resident of Anne Arundel County and two-time GOP candidate for the Maryland General Assembly, announced his diagnosis this week on Facebook but made it clear he wouldn’t disclose the names of anyone with whom he had been in contact.

“If you feel like you need to, let your doctor know you’ve been exposed to me,” Walters said, Fox 5 reported Friday. “I will not share anybody’s information with the government, I’m just not going to do it.”

Reopen Maryland, started in April, has fought what it perceives as the overreaching of government authority during the coronavirus crisis and has organized rallies for its cause in such places as Annapolis and the Eastern Shore.
