Attendees at a Nevada campaign rally for President Donald Trump on Saturday appeared to not be social distancing, and few people have been seen wearing face masks as they wait to go through security ahead of the event.

Minden, Nevada (CNN)Attendees at a Nevada campaign rally for President Donald Trump on Saturday appeared to not be social distancing, and few people have been seen wearing face masks as they wait to go through security ahead of the event.

She said she feels safe and rejects the idea of wearing masks because she doesn't believe the pandemic is as serious as health experts say.

The campaign earlier offered vague explanations as to how it will adhere to Covid-19 mitigation protocols in Nevada for the rallies the President plans to hold this weekend.

Trump's rally in North Carolina on Tuesday violated Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper's mandate that outdoor gatherings be limited to 50 people.

The President and most of his gathered supporters also did not wear masks, despite a statewide mask mandate in North Carolina.

And at rally in Michigan earlier this week, attendees were not wearing face masks, one of the few proven ways to mitigate the spread of Covid-19.

When asked specifically if the campaign plans to limit the number of people that will be allowed into the rally, a campaign official said, "Every attendee will get a temperature check prior to admission, be provided a mask they're encouraged to wear, and have access to plenty of hand sanitizers. "

But health experts have stressed that people can still spread the virus even if they don't have symptoms, like a fever, which makes it all the more important to wear a mask.
