Six Trump staffers setting up for Tulsa rally test positive for Coronavirus

Washington, Jun 20 (AP) USA President Donald Trump's campaign says six staff members who helped to set up for his Saturday night rally in Oklahona, Tulsa have tested positive for COVID-19.

Trump's campaign communications director, Tim Murtaugh, said in a statement that quarantine mesures were taken immediately and no staff members who tested positive for COVID-19 would attend the event.

Tim said no one who had immediate contact with these positive staffers would attend, either.

Tim said campaign staffers are tested for COVID-19 as part of the campaign's safety measures.

President Trump's campaign officials said everyone who is attending the MAGA rally will be given temperature checks before they pass through security.

They will be given face masks, water bottles, if they want, and hand sanitizer at the 19,000 seat BOK Center.

The MAGA rally is expected to be the biggest indoor event USA has seen since restrictions to prevent the COVID19 from spreading began in March. (AP)
