Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted on Monday that the campaign plans to check the temperature of everyone who enters the venue for tonight's rally.
They will also be providing hand sanitizer, and each attendee will receive a mask provided by the campaign. Attendees, however, will not be required to wear the masks.
In an interview with Axios Friday, President Trump said he would not wear a mask at the rally: “Not as a protest but I don't feel that I'm in danger."
Trump also told Axios that he wants rally attendees to “make their own decisions” about wearing a face mask. He didn’t encourage or discourage people to wear them, and called masks "a double-edged sword."
"I recommend people do what they want," the President said.
He told Axios, “there was a time when people thought it was worse wearing a mask,” adding, "I let people make up their own decision."
Dr. Bruce Dart, executive director of the Tulsa Health Department, told CNN’s Don Lemon Friday that he is concerned about the impact Trump’s rally will have on Tulsa and on the rest of the country during this Covid-19 pandemic.
He thinks the President and his followers should wear a mask at the rally.
“We have such little tools to keep people safe, we have no vaccine, we have no clinical therapies. One of the few tools we have is social distancing and a mask to break the chain of transmission of the virus,” Dart said.
CNN reported that rallygoers RSVP'd to gain admission to the event and by registering, they had to agree to a disclaimer that states they acknowledge the "inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present."
