Audience members at First Lady Melania Trump’s speech during the Republican National Convention (RNC) in the White House Rose Garden on Tuesday night were reportedly not required to test for COVID-19 beforehand.
According to CNN, there was no requirement for the dozens of people who were present at the speech to take the tests.
Additionally, nobody reportedly took tests or temperature checks at the White House.
There didn’t seem to be a mask mandate either, as indicated by photos of the audience that showed hardly anyone wearing facial coverings, including President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
Tim Murtaugh, a spokesperson for the Trump campaign, told CNN that “all suggested protocols were followed” after reaching out to a “coronavirus adviser.”
