Alaska Senator Lora Reinbold who was banned from flying for refusing to wear a mask tests positive for Covid-19
- Senator Lora Reinbold revealed Tuesday night that she tested positive for Covid
- Alaska Senator, 57, plans to use her Vicks steamer and ivermectin as medicine
- She was banned from flying Alaska Airlines because she refused to wear a mask
An Alaska senator who was previously banned from flying for refusing to wear a mask has tested positive for Covid-19.
Republican Senator Lora Reinbold, 57, revealed this week that she had tested positive for the deadly virus and vowed to fight the disease with anti-parasite Ivermectin tablets.
She also said she plans to use her Vicks steamer, which she called a “God’s gift,” as well as “lots of vitamins” to help her fight the virus.
Ivermectin, an anti-parasite used to treat roundworm infections in animals, has become the drug of choice among anti-vax conspiracy theorists this summer.

A second Republican senator from Alaska, David Wilson, also tested positive for the virus, according to Anchorage Daily News, and is quarantined at home with mild symptoms.
In April of this year, Senator Reinbold was banned from flying Alaska Airlines because he “constantly” refused to wear a mask, forcing her to complete the 40-hour journey to the capital by car and ferry.
And on Tuesday evening, she took to her Facebook page to reveal her diagnosis, saying she was “completely unimpressed” by the government’s guidelines for fighting Covid-19 and that she would use her own remedies.

Reinbold wrote: ‘It’s my turn to fight Covid head on… game on! Who do you think will win?
“When I beat it, I’ll tell you my recipe. I am not at all impressed with the instructions, on my positive test, which says to go home and take Tylenol (which is contraindicated) until you can’t breathe – bad prescription from cdc/dept or health.
‘I take a lot of vitamins ABCD & Quercitine & zinc citrate. Vit E and aspirin to reduce clotting. I am blessed to have been given Ivirmectin the ‘de-covider’. My Vicks steamer is a God sent one!
‘My naturopath has also given me tips, which I’m sure will work! I will update you in a few days. I intend to keep my promise to stay OUTSIDE the hospital – some of them seem like scary places these days.”

The increasing popularity of the use of Ivermecting has led health authorities to beg people not to take the animal version of the dewormer, which can have serious adverse side effects.
The FDA warned against the use of ivermectin in September, saying it has not authorized or approved the drug to treat Covid-19 and it has not been shown to be “safe or effective.”
The federal agency also warned there was “a lot of misinformation” about the drug, saying a high dose of the veterinary drug could be toxic to humans.
Reinbold has been an outspoken opponent of Covid-19 mitigation measures and has repeatedly objected to Alaska Airlines’ mask policy, which was passed this year ahead of the federal government’s mandate.
