Secret Service To Wear Masks When Around Trump

ABC News reports:

Secret Service agents close to the president and in the vicinity of the Oval Office will begin wearing face masks, sources said. The Secret Service declined to comment Sunday night. Some agents already on the ground during Trump’s Arizona trip last week were seen wearing face masks.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said on Friday that the White House “is probably the safest place you can come to,” despite confusion internally about what the Trump administration was actually doing to keep the building and its employees safe since they don’t follow social distancing measures.

Over the weekend, Meadows worked with the White House medical and security units to put additional protocols in place, sources said.

Last week it was reported that at least 34 Secret Service agents have tested positive.
