Oklahoma health commissioner Lance Frye said on Tuesday that while he appreciates President Trump's team offering temperature checks, face masks and hand sanitizer for the upcoming Tulsa rally, attendees should still be tested for the coronavirus after the campaign event.

What he's saying: "As outlined by the CDC, individuals looking to attend Saturday's event ... will face an increased risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 and becoming a transmitter," Frye said. "Plan in advance and seek out testing ... and limit interactions with others prior to attending. Once the event has concluded, please minimize social interactions and consider being tested again in the days following."

  • Frye also suggested that rally-goers wear face coverings, use hand sanitizer and maintain 6 feet of distance from others when possible.

The big picture: Trump plans to host his first re-election rally in months on June 20 amid an uptick in COVID-19 cases in Oklahoma. Tulsa City-County Health Department director Bruce Dart urged the Trump campaign to delay the event, arguing it could put the public and Trump himself at risk.

Betsy DeVos: Schools that don't reopen shouldn't get federal funds

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told "Fox News Sunday" that public schools that don't reopen in the fall should not get federal funds, and that the money should be redirected to families who can use it to find another option for their children.

Why it matters: The Trump administration is engaged in a full-court press to reopen schools this fall, despite warnings from some public health officials that the coronavirus outbreak is out of control in many states and that it will be difficult for many schools to reopen safely.

Adam Schiff: "Republicans won't stand up for the rule of law"

House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) criticized Republicans for not speaking out against President Trump's commutation of Roger Stone's prison sentence, pointing out on ABC's "This Week" that Stone was convicted for lying to a GOP-led committee.

The big picture: Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Pat Toomey (R-Penn.) are the only Republican senators who have condemned the move, with Romney calling it "unprecedented, historic corruption" and Toomey noting that Stone was "duly convicted" by a jury.
