President Donald Trump hits the campaign trail next week, and he is betting on the people in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to come out in their thousands.
However, there is one caveat — attendees must agree not to hold his campaign liable if they get the coronavirus in the 19,000-seat arena.
An invitation for the June 19 event in Tulsa, Oklahoma, asks people to register online for the event —and waive their rights to sue if they get sick.
“By clicking register below, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By attending the Rally, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.,” the rally site or organizers “liable for any illness or injury,” the form says.
The Rally is set to take place in the Bank of Oklahoma Center and comes as the city is in phase three of reopening from the coronavirus pandemic.
“Under Phase 3, businesses may resume unrestricted staffing at their worksites by observing proper CDC-recommended social distancing protocols and are recommended to continue increased cleaning and disinfecting practices,” Gov. Kevin Stitt’s office said in a May 29 statement.
According to a press report, campaign officials said there would be health precautions in place at the event but did not elaborate.
Meanwhile, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters on Wednesday she didn’t have specific information but said, “we will ensure that everyone who goes is safe.
