(CNN) – Dozens of Secret Service agents will be quarantined following President Donald Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, according to a law enforcement official who described the quarantine as a precaution.
Saturday’s rally packed a little over 6,000 people into the Bank of Oklahoma Center, fire officials said. But face masks and social distancing were not required.
Eight Trump staffers who helped organize the event have tested positive for the coronavirus, and so did two secret service agents, according to a source familiar with the matter.
The Secret Service says it does not provide information about how many employees may be quarantined or infected, but says its still able to fulfill all of its duties.
