Tulsa, June 20 (RHC)-- Oklahoma's Supreme Court rejected an effort to require everyone attending U.S. President Donald Trump's rally in Tulsa on Saturday to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing to guard against spreading the coronavirus.
In a concurring opinion, two justices said the local residents asking for precautions at Trump's rally -- the U.S.'s largest indoor gathering in months -- could not establish their legal right to the relief they sought.
The petition was filed by two people described as having compromised immune systems and at particular risk from COVID-19. The ruling came as Oklahoma reported its second-biggest increase in new infections on Friday, logging 359 cases of COVID-19 and one death. T hat brings the state's total case load to 9,706 and number of deaths to 367.
