Six staffers of the Trump campaign advance team tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP virus, hours before Trumps rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Saturday.
“Per safety protocols, campaign staff are tested for COVID-19 before events. Six members of the advance team tested positive,” Trump Campaign Communication Director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement. “Quarantine procedures were immediately implemented.”
Murtaugh said that hundreds of tests were performed to the campaign staff and those COVID-positive staffers will not be allowed to attend the rally or stay close to rally attendees and elected officials.
“As previously announced, all rally attendees are given temperature checks before going through security, at which point they are given wristbands, facemasks, and hand sanitizer,” he added.
Saturdays rally is the first one since March—when the CCP virus pandemic put a halt to all in-person campaign events—and has received ticket requests from over one million supporters, the Trump campaign announced earlier this week.
