(Corrects number in second paragraph to six, not four)

WASHINGTON, June 22 (Reuters) - Two more staff members of President Donald Trump’s campaign who were in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for his rally on Saturday have tested positive for the coronavirus, a Trump campaign spokesman said on Monday.

The campaign announced on Saturday hours before the rally, Trump’s first since March, that six members of the campaign’s advance staff had tested positive.

“After another round of testing for campaign staff in Tulsa, two additional members of the advance team tested positive for the coronavirus,” spokesman Tim Murtaugh said. “These staff members attended the rally but were wearing masks during the entire event.”
