The Trump campaign says it knocked on nearly 60,000 doors over the weekend as it resumed in-person operations.
Trump Victory said last week it began returning staff to offices and knocking on doors again. It had gone entirely virtual since March as a safety measure during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Operatives opened four field offices in Jefferson, St. Croix, Wood and Douglas counties. The campaign said they will be cleaned each evening. All employees and volunteers are also encouraged to maintain social distancing from others or wear masks for safety measures.
The campaign added it’s asking door knockers to wear gloves and masks, use hand sanitizer frequently and stand at least six feet away from people’s doors when speaking with voters.
Meanwhile, Wisconsin Democratic Party spokesman Philip Shulman last week said Dems mean to “follow the guidance of public health experts” before rekindling in-person operations.
