First lady Melania Trump, who contracted COVID-19 several weeks ago, pulled out of her husband’s campaign rally scheduled for Tuesday evening in Pennsylvania due to remaining symptoms of the virus.

“Mrs. Trump continues to feel better every day following her recovery from COVID-19, but with a lingering cough, and out of an abundance of caution, she will not be traveling today,” Stephanie Grisham, the First Lady’s spokesperson, told NBC News.

Trump and the President were slated to appear together at the rally together in Erie, Pennsylvania.
