If you attended a recent Trump campaign event, experts say you should take safety precautions

The president and the first lady have both tested positive for coronavirus, and those who have recently attended Trump campaign rallies are encouraged to take precautionary measures.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health has released guidance to anyone who attended President Donald Trump’s rally on Saturday at Harrisburg International Airport after it was revealed the president tested positive for the coronavirus.

Here is the statement from the Pennsylvania Department of Health:

“Pennsylvania has worked to make sure that anyone who needs a test can get one. If you are feeling sick and need to be tested, please contact your health care provider or visit health.pa.gov to find a testing location near you.

If you were at the presidential campaign event in Middletown, we do encourage you to download the COVID Alert PA app. If you test positive, you can alert those you came in close contact with anonymously through the app.”

The app is available in the Apple Store and Google Play. Just search “COVID Alert PA.”

Trump held a fundraiser in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Thursday and the state’s governor, Phil Murphy, is encouraging everyone who was there to get tested.

“We urge everyone who attended yesterday’s event in Bedminster to take full precautions, including self-quarantining and getting tested for #COVID19,” he tweeted, along with well-wishes for the president and first lady.
