6 Campaign Staffers Test Positive for Coronavirus in Tulsa Ahead of Rally
Six members of President Trump who were helping set up for his Saturday night rally in Tulsa tested positive for COVID-19.
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh in a statement said that quarantine procedures were immediately implemented.
In the past week, Tulsa saw a spike of coronavirus cases and health officials were requesting for the rally to be postponed but Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt stated that it would be safe.
According to campaign officials, everyone attending the rally would be given temperature checks before passing through security. They would also be provided masks to wear and hand sanitizers at the 19,000-seat BOK Center.
Trump’s rally in Tulsa would be expected to be the biggest in the US since restrictions preventing the spread of COVID-19 started in March.
