Republican state senator Lola Reinbolt, a vocal critic of the vaccination obligation, said on Facebook that she was showing symptoms of the virus-induced illness, Covid-19.
Her revelation came when Alaska tackled the pandemic’s worst coronavirus outbreak.
“It’s your turn to fight Covid head-on … let’s start the game!” Reinbolt wrote on Tuesday. “Who do you think will win? I’ll tell you the recipe if you defeat it.”
Rheinbold, 57, said in April video It emerged that she was discussing mask rules with employees at Juneau International Airport.
The exchange allowed Alaska Airlines to ban Mr. Reinbolt’s flight, which was later upheld. As long as the Federal Mask mission is in place (extended until January 18, 2022), Mr. Reinbolt will be banned from Alaska Airlines flights, the airline said in an email Thursday.

The Republican-led Senate accepted her request without objection.
Mr. Reinbolt’s legislative aide, who previously called the airline ban “mask tyranny,” did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday.

In August, the Food and Drug Administration warned that ivermectin should not be taken to treat or prevent Covid-19. Demand for the drug surged as Fox News facilitated the discovery of research on its use for Covid-19.

Reinbolt, who spoke on the floor of the Alaska Senate last month, continued to be rebellious against federal mask orders.
“As long as Biden’s illegal mask mandates apply to private and public transport, the political ban remains in force,” she said.
In August, the Department of Transportation Security extended the requirements for face masks for airports, planes, commuter buses and trains until January 18. Last month, fines for travelers who refused to wear masks at airports and commercial aircraft doubled.
