Paul Monies, a reporter for Oklahoma Watch, said he received his positive diagnosis on Friday, although he is not experiencing symptoms.

“Friends, test positive for # COVID19. I’m pretty surprised. I have zero symptoms (so far) and I feel good. In fact, I ran 5 miles this morning. I spent the last few hours calling people I’ve been in contact with in the past 14 days. Be safe out there, ”he wrote on Twitter.

Monies was at the BOK Center last Saturday to cover the Trump rally and said he was wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. She was never close to the President.

“I can’t say definitively that I got it at the rally,” Monies told The Associated Press. “But it’s someone I’ve been in contact with in the past two weeks.”

“I spent a couple of hours contacting anyone I was in contact with inside, some friends in the neighborhood,” he added. “I felt it was my responsibility to tell people I knew myself that I had tested positive.”

The news of Monies’ diagnosis comes after six Trump campaign employees and two Secret Service members working in Tulsa before the rally tested positive for COVID-19.

Oklahoma, as well as several other southern and western states, saw an increase in coronavirus cases in recent weeks as their economy reopened.
