Six campaign staffers working on United States President Donald Trump's Tulsa rally have tested positive for COVID-19, his campaign team confirmed.

Tim Murtaugh, the campaign's communications director, said in an emailed statement to Global News that the six staffers who tested positive were six "out of hundreds of tests performed," adding "quarantine procedures were immediately implemented."

"No COVID-positive staffers or anyone in immediate contact will be at today's rally or near attendees and elected officials. As previously announced, all rally attendees are given temperature checks before going through security, at which point they are given wristbands, face masks and hand sanitizer," he said.
