The staff members had been in Tulsa ahead of today’s event, which already had thousands lining up as of this morning. The political rally’s have been warned against by both health officials and advisors.

Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the Trump Campaign, said in a statement this afternoon, “Per safety protocols, campaign staff are tested for COVID-19 before events.  Six members of the advance team tested positive out of hundreds of tests preformed, and quarantine procedures were immediately implemented.”

Over 19,000 people can sit inside the inclosed Tulsa arena.  All in attendance have been asked to sign a digital waver releasing the campaign from liability if they get sick.

Both Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Brix have expressed concern in the last week over safety issues n Tulsa. Tulsa County has seen 100 percent spike in COVID-19 cases as cases in that County continue to rise.
