Face masks, questionnaires and daily tests for COVID-19 are part of the health protocols for attendees at next month's Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee.
The stringent list will be in place when Democrats meet Aug. 17-20 at the Wisconsin Center in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.
Convention organizers released a fact-sheet Monday that provides details of public health measures to "curb the risk of disease spread among those attending the convention in Milwaukee, including guests, law enforcement, media, and staff."
Everyone, from presumptive nominee Joe Biden on down, will have to wear a face mask.
But Biden and other main speakers will be able to take off their face masks when addressing the convention from the podium, which will be set 20 feet away from other people.
