Trump rally attendees must agree not to hold campaign liable if they get COVID-19

To register for President Trump's June 19 rally in Oklahoma, attendees must agree not to hold his campaign responsible if they catch coronavirus at the event.

Trump is holding his first rally since March at the BOK Center in Tulsa, and attendees must agree to an online waiver of liability that reads: "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.; BOK Center; ASM Global; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers liable for any illness or injury."

The BOK Center can hold about 19,000 people, and while the Trump campaign told Newsweek there will be "health precautions" in place, no details have been released on any social distancing measures. The coronavirus is still a concern in Oklahoma, which has had nearly 7,700 confirmed cases since March.
