An Alaska lawmaker, who was banned from an airline after refusing to wear a mask has tested positive for COVID-19.
State Senator Lora Reinbold was quarantining at home Tuesday night, where she told her Facebook friends she was “completely unimpressed” with CDC guidance to take Tylenol and decided to concoct her own “recipe.”
“Its my turn to battle Covid head on… game on! Who do you think is going to win? When I defeat it, I will tell you my recipe,” the Republican pol posted, before going on to list her “recipe” of unsanctioned treatments.
“I am taking lots of vitamins ABCD & Quercitin & zinc citrate. Vit E and aspirin to reduce clotting. I am blessed to have gotten Ivirmectin the ‘de -covider,’” the 57-year-old wrote.
The FDA recently issued a stern warning against human or animal use of ivermectin – an anti-parasite used to treat roundworm infections – to treat COVID-19.
Reinbold described Ivirmectin, which the FDA warned against using to treat COVID-19, as a “de-covider” in a social media post. AP

Reinbold made headlines this spring after she was banned from Alaskan Airlines and had to drive 750 miles and take a ferry to cast a vote against a public health emergency bill. Alaskan is the only airline that flies to Juneau from her Anchorage-area district.
A second state Republican, Sen. David Wilson, also tested positive for the virus, according to the Anchorage Daily News.
