After the controversial rally in Tulsa, the President decides to cancel his campaign rally in Alabama because of rising Coronavirus cases. Read about it below
Trump was scheduled to visit Alabama but has publicly announced that it has been cancelled due to the growing coronavirus cases this past week. The President received countless criticism for deciding to continue with rally in Tulsa on June 20th where masks, face coverings, and social distancing were not being enforced. After seeing the result in Tulsa, Alabama officials started voicing concerns about a mass gathering amid the pandemic.
The Governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey, has announced a state order today stating that face masks in public are now mandatory. Group gatherings' size where social distancing cannot be maintained is also forbidden, which makes Trump’s rally impossible to take place. Trump commented that he doesn't think it’s too complicated to wear a mask or wash your hands and follow basic hygiene protocols. Now more than ever, facial masks in public have become the “new normal” in the United States. After President Trump's Tulsa rally, eight campaign staffers and two Secret Service agents have been infected with Covid-19 which has obligated his campaign staff and many White House officials to quarantine for at least 14 days.
