MILWAUKEE — Daily COVID-19 tests will be required for all DNC attendees.

This includes all guests, law enforcement, media, and staff. Testing will take place at the Wisconsin Center and another offsite location. Test results from other areas will not be accepted.

Officials said that attendees must have a negative test result prior to entering the DNC. Participants also need to quarantine for 72 hours before arriving.

Those at the DNC must also confirm that they have not been experiencing any symptoms or came in contact with a person with the virus. Participants will have to wear a face mask, and avoid bars, restaurants, and other areas where social distancing isn't possible.

Those who do not abide by these terms will not be allowed in the convention.
