Massachusetts State Police did their patriotic duty on Wednesday as they spent the day assisting the United States Secret Service in escorting President Joe Biden from Rhode Island to Somerset Massachusetts and back. The president made the trip to highlight the environmental and economic promise of offshore wind and also to pledge executive action in dealing with the threats of climate change. 

President Biden's trip came one day before he tested positive for COVID-19. He tested positive today (Thursday) according to White House officials. He had previously tested negative on Wednesday.

According to a brief post on the State Police Association of Massachusetts Facebook page, the team of State Troopers worked with other federal, regional, and local assets - including the U.S. Secret Service - to make Wednesday's trip happen safely.
