(CNN)Two staffers who attended President Donald Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday tested positive for coronavirus, Trump’s campaign said Monday.
“After another round of testing for campaign staff in Tulsa, two additional members of the advance team tested positive for the coronavirus. These staff members attended the rally but were wearing masks during the entire event. Upon the positive tests, the campaign immediately activated established quarantine and contact tracing protocols,” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told CNN in a statement.
The two positive tests, first reported by CNBC
, bring the total number of Trump advance team staffers in Tulsa who tested positive for coronavirus to eight.
Hours before Trump’s Saturday rally, the campaign said that six staffers working on the rally
tested positive for coronavirus.
Murtaugh said in a statement then that “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 performed, and quarantine procedures were immediately implemented.”
“No COVID-positive staffers or anyone in immediate contact will be at today’s rally or near attendees and elected officials,” he said.
