Dozens of Secret Service Employees Ordered to Self-Quarantine After Trump’s Tulsa Rally

The Secret Service ordered dozens of its officers and agents to self-quarantine after attending President Trump’s rally in Tulsa.

The employees were instructed to work from home for 14 days, The Washington Post reports.

Two Secret Service employees were among at least six advance staffers who had tested positive for COVID-19.

Employees who were ordered to self-quarantine also must get tested for COVID-19.

The Secret Service is now requiring agents to be tested 24 to 48 hours before a presidential trip, according to an email obtained by CNN.

“We want to make sure that we have a healthy workforce and that we are protecting our people,” a Secret Service official told CNN. “This is good common sense.”

Trump has been criticized for holding the rally in defiance of federal social-distancing guidelines.

It’s still not clear yet whether the rally led to an outbreak of the virus.

A threatening letter containing black powder prompted the evacuation of the DEA’s office in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood Thursday, the New York Daily News reports.

The DEA evacuated a floor of its offices and quarantined three employees after the letter was opened at 9:15 a.m.

Police, firefighters, medics and the FBI responded to the scene.

“Right now, the area is being investigated and analyzed,” Mulvey said Thursday afternoon. “The three individuals exposed look to be fine, but we are still evaluating.”

The DEA said the letter was not addressed to anyone in particular.
