OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A journalist who covered the President’s rally in Tulsa on Saturday says that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Oklahoma Watch reporter Paul Monies said on Twitter he was notified Friday of his positive test result. This comes after news that several campaign staffers who worked the event had also tested positive.

Monies said he was inside the BOK Center in Tulsa for about six hours on Saturday during the President’s rally. Monies said he was wearing a mask and mostly following social distancing guidelines. Monies was never near the President and spent most of the time around other journalists. He said that an epidemiologist who contacted him said it’s difficult to determine exactly when he contracted the virus.
