WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Two other President Donald Trump campaign employees who were in Tulsa, Oklahoma for his rally on Saturday, tested positive for the corona virus, a Trump campaign spokesman said Monday.
The campaign said on Saturday before the rally, Trump's first since March, that six members of the campaign's advance staff had tested positive.
"After another round of testing for campaign workers in Tulsa, two more members of the advance team tested positive for the corona virus," said spokesman Tim Murtaugh. "These employees attended the rally, but wore masks throughout the event."
The White House and Trump campaign has largely addressed concerns about holding a rally with thousands of people, despite warnings from health officials about a large group gathering.
Most people at the rally didn't wear masks.
The arena had thousands of free seats on Saturday, a blow to Trump who is enjoying himself in large crowds, and his campaign where demand exceeded the number of tickets available for the event.
