In a campaign call with reporters, Vice President Mike Pence said that the upcoming Republican National Convention in Jacksonville, Florida, next month “is a work in progress,” and “there’s consideration being given to having the convention in an outdoor setting, and also putting the kind of measures in place that put the health of all of those that are participating, our delegates, visitors, and anyone else is present, we’ll put the health of everyone participating first.”

As previously reported, the RNC Host committee has indicated they plan to test all those within the perimeter on a daily basis.

Pence went on to encourage Americans, “particularly in the impacted areas, to take those steps to heed state and local guidance, to wash your hands, practice good hygiene, wear a mask when it’s indicated by state and local officials, and, and also to wear a mask when social distancing is not possible.” 

It’s worth noting that President Trump is currently in Georgia, where he’s conspicuously not observing Atlanta’s mask ordinance.
