Health officials voice concerns over Trump rally in Sanford

SANFORD, Fla. — Seminole County leaders are hoping Monday’s presidential rally in Sanford doesn’t end up being a COVID-19 super-spreader event.

The rally drew thousands of people to the Orlando Sanford International Airport. It’s also drawing criticism from health experts because of the lack of social distancing and few people wearing masks.

Doctors said it will take 10 to 14 days to see if any of those in the crowd got COVID-19. A lot of people came from other parts of the state to see the president, so a spike may not necessarily be seen in Seminole County.
