The mayor said that police officers would not be handing out tickets to attendees without masks.

"We're asking for people to practice their judgment and help us here in the city of Tucson," she said. Romero said that she's heard anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 people could be coming to attend the Monday rally.

Newsweek reached out to the Trump campaign for comment, but it did not immediately respond.

In yesterday's Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace pressed Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller over the president's rallies, which the journalist pointed out do not follow the administration's own guidelines to curb the spread of COVID-19. "Why does the president continue to hold these rallies where thousands of people are packed together—the vast majority of them without masks?" Wallace asked.

Miller responded by outlining the precautions that are in place, noting that masks and hand sanitizer are handed out to all attendees, whose temperatures are checked. He said that Trump supporters at the rallies are encouraged to wash their hands and take precautions. "We're going to be strong. We're going to be safe. But we're not going to be scared here," he said.
