ABC’S KENNETH MOTON HAS THE DETAILS. ANITA MCBRIDE WAS FIRST LADY LAURA BUSH’S CHIEF OF STAFF. BUT SHE’S EXPERIENCED PRESIDENTIAL TRANSITIONS UP CLOSE BACK TO THE REAGAN ADMINISTRATION. SOT ANITA MCBRIDE KM: WHAT IS THAT ENERGY LIKE FOR THIS PERIOD OF TRANSITION? AM: THE BEST WAY TO SORT OF DESCRIBE IT IS THAT TRANSITION OF THE HOUSE IS AN ORGANIZED CHAOS. EVERY SINGLE PERSON ON THE TEAM, ON THE WHITE HOUSE RESIDENCE TEAM WILL HAVE A ROLE AND A JOB AND A RESPONSIBILITY. THE MOVING TRUCKS ALREADY ON SITE. BOXES PACKED. NORMALLY – DOZENS OF WHITE HOUSE STAFFERS INCLUDING BUTLERS, USHERS AND MAINTENANCE CREWS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DEEP CLEANING THE 132 ROOM MANSION – WITH ONLY 5 TO 6 HOURS TO DO IT. SOT ANITA MCBRIDE ALL THE ITEMS OF THE OUTGOING PRESIDENT WILL BE BOXED UP, WILL BE LOADED UP. THE BEDS ARE STRIPPED, MATTRESSES ARE REMOVED. NEW MATTRESSES COME IN AND THEN BEDS ARE MADE AND THE BATHROOMS ARE READIED. THIS TIME – BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS – CLEANING REINFORCEMENTS ARE BEING CALLED IN – A VIRGINIA CONTRACTOR HAS BEEN AWARDED THE JOB OF DEEP- CLEANING THE WHITE HOUSE. THE GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION SAYS “CLEANING WILL INCLUDE, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, ALL FURNITURE, FLOORING, WINDOW TREATMENTS, HANDRAILS, DOOR KNOBS, LIGHT SWITCHES, COUNTERTOPS, ELEVATOR BUTTONS, RESTROOM FIXTURES AND DISPENSERS, DOOR HANDLES AND PUSH PLATES, AND LIGHTING FIXTURES.” THE DEEP CLEANING COMES AFTER MULTIPLE LARGE, MOSTLY MASKLESS, IN PERSON EVENTS AT THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE IN RECENT MONTHS. THE EVENTS WERE LINKED TO AT LEAST THREE COVID-19 OUTBREAKS – DOZENS OF TRUMP STAFFERS AND ALLIES TESTING POSITIVE, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT AND THE FIRST LADY. SOT – MCBRIDE KM: WE’VE HAD SEVERAL OUTBREAKS OF THE WHITE HOUSE, SO WE’RE SEEING TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF ADMINISTRATIONS HERE WHEN IT COMES TO HOW THEY’RE HANDLING THE PANDEMIC. AND THAT’S GOING TO PLAY OUT AT THIS NEW WHITE HOUSE. AM: ARE THEY GOING TO STAGGER THE NUMBERS OF STAFF THAT ACTUALLY WORK IN THE COMPLEX AS OPPOSED TO WORK REMOTELY? WILL THEY BE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS WHILE THEY’RE INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE IN THEIR OFFICES? / IT DEFINITELY WILL BE A MARKED DIFFERENCE FROM WHAT WE HAVE SEEN THE BIDEN TEAM HAS ALREADY SAID IT WON’T HAVE ALL ITS STAFF IN THE WHITE HOUSE RIGHT AWAY, SAYING THE GOAL – COVID SAFETY FIRST FOR EVERYONE. AND A REMINDER – THE BIDENS HAVE RECEIVED THE VACCINE FOR COVID-19. KENNETH MOTON, ABC NEWS WASHINGTON. HERE’S A LIVE LOOK AT THE NATIONAL MALL IN WASHINGTON D-C. LATER TODAY— THIS IS WHERE CROWDS OF PEOPLE WOULD NORMALLY GATHER FOR THE INAUGURATION. AS WE MENTIONED EARLY– – INSTEAD THE LAWN IS FILLED WITH AMERICAN FLAGS. NEW GEORGIA SENATORS REVEREND RAPHAEL WARNOCK AND JON OSSOFF ARE SCHEDULED TO BE SWORN IN TO OFFICE BY–SOON TO BE–VICE PRESIDENT– KAMALA HARRIS TODAY— AFTER SHE IS INAUGURATED– OFFICIALLY– AS– THE–V-P. GEORGIA SECRETARY OF STATE BRAD RAFFENSPERGER CERTIFIED THE SENATE RUNOFF ELECTION RESULTS JUST YESTERDAY.. GEORGIA GOVERNOR BRIAN KEMP WILL SIGN THE PAPERWORK TO MAKE IT OFFICIAL. THE WINS FOR OSSOFF AND WARNOCK FLIPPED CONTROL OF THE U- S SENATE — GIVING DEMOCRATS CONTROL OF BOTH CHAMBERS OF CONGRESS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A DECADE. THIS MORNING DISTRIBUTION OF THE COVID-19 VACCINE CONTINUES TO CHANGE RAPIDLY – ACROSS THE LOWCOUNTRY. WJCL’S DANIEL ROBINSON – JOINS US NOW LIVE – AND DANIEL THIS COMES AFTER THOUSANDS OF VACCINE APPOINTMENTS WERE CANCELED. ASHLEY – IT DOES – RIGHT NOW – HOSPITALS ARE WORKING TO GET EVERYONE RESCHEDULE – WHO’S APPOINTMENTS WERE CANCELED – AND HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE ASKING PEOPLE TO BE PATIENT. JUST LAST WEEK — BEAUFORT MEMORIAL HAD TO CANCEL 6 THOUSAND APPOINTMENTS – AND HILTON HEAD REGIONAL HAD TO CANCEL 300 APPOINTMENTS. THIS IS BECAUSE THE STATE IS GETTING LESS DOSES OF THE VACCINE — BUT — HOSPITALS SAY THEY ARE WORKING TO GET THOSE PEOPLE RESCHEDULED – WHEN MORE VACCINES BECOMES AVAILABLE. THIS WEEK – PUBLIX PHARMACY STARTING SCHEDULING PEOPLE TO GET THE COVID-19 VACCINE – BUT ACCORDING TO THEIR WEBSITE – THEY ARE ALREADY FULLY BOOKED IN BEAUFORT COUNTY. LOWCOUNTRY LEADERS SAY – IT WILL TAKE SEVERAL MORE SHIPMENTS BEFORE THE AREA CAN GET BACK ON TRACK. “ULTIMATELY IT IS GOING TO TAKE RECEIVING A LARGE AMOUNT OF DOSES THEN WE HAVE HAD THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS AND UNFORTUNATELY OUR NUMBERS HAVE BEEN GOING DOWN INSTEAD OF GOING UP AND SO UNTIL WE SEE THAT THERE IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE A GREATER AMOUNT OF DEMAND THEN THERE IS SUPPLY FOR THE VACCINE AND WE CONTINUE TO ASK FOR PEOPLE’S PATIENTS AS WE WORK THROUGH THIS BUT IT MUST BE DOWN IN AN ORDERLY FASHION” AS A REMINDER – RIGHT NOW – SOUTH CAROLINA IS SCHEDULING THOSE IN THE FIRST PHASE TO GET THE VACCINE. THAT ALSO INCLUDES ANY PERSON WHO IS AT LEAST 70 YEARS OR OLDER. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEWHERE TO GET THE COVID-19 VACCINE AND YOU QUALIFY — YOU CAN CHECK THE NEW COVID-19 VACCINE LOCATION ON THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS WEBSITE – WE ALSO HAVE THAT LINK ON WJCL DOT COM. ASHLEY…. DANIEL – THERE IS ALSO A PUSH TO HIRE MORE PEOPLE TO HELP THE ROLL OUT OF THE VACCINE – HOW CAN PEOPLE APPLY? ASHLEY – DHEC IS LOOKING TO HIRE AROUND 150 POSITIONS – FROM HELPING GIVE OUT VACCINES TO TESTING. SOME OF THOSE POSITIONS INCLUDE NURSES, PHARMACIST AND OTHER KEY SUPPORT STAFF AND ASHLEY THEY CAN FIND THE JOB
