Secret Service testing for COVID-19 changed post Tulsa rally

Dozens of Secret Service agents will be quarantined after Trump's Tulsa rally

Quote

...The mass quarantine has led to the decision that Secret Service agents involved with presidential trips must be tested for coronavirus for the next couple of weeks, according to an email sent to agency personnel. The email sent out Wednesday was confirmed by the law enforcement official. Agents must now be tested 24 to48 hours before a presidential trip, the email said. The new testing mandate will be in place until July 4.

The law enforcement official said the number of quarantined agents is on the "low" side of dozens. A Secret Service official said the quarantining will not impact the agency's operations....

In fact, it appears that the federal government is scaling back the federally managed testing centers.

And that is how Trump and his cabal have failed the American public. They're always doing the opposite of what should be done, goes against scientific/medical communities, almost as if intentionally trying to ruin the country. I don't understand the assholery of it all.

Multiple Trump campaign staffers quarantining after Tulsa rally

Quote

All of President Donald Trump's campaign staffers who attended his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday are quarantining this week after interacting with several colleagues who later tested positive for coronavirus, CNN has learned....

..Several of the campaign's surrogates who traveled to Tulsa have also undergone coronavirus testing out of an abundance of caution, two sources said.

Many of the surrogates -- including lawmakers, former lawmakers and campaign advisers -- traveled on a chartered plane together without wearing masks.

Trump's campaign had urged many of them to come so the President could have a show of force for his return to the campaign trail.

I wonder if that's why he cancelled some of his other rallies.
