Local Charlotte, North Carolina, health officials reported Friday that two attendees and two staffers working the Republican National Convention tested positive for the coronavirus.

The Hill reports that Mecklenburg County officials said the four people have been isolated and anyone who they came in contact with has been alerted. It is unclear whether any of the infected people showed any virus symptoms.

Some Charlotte officials had raised concerns over the safety measures being taken during the scaled-back convention. A few hundred members of the GOP gathered to formally renominate President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Video from the RNC showed people standing closely together for photos and some people weren’t wearing masks.

But the RNC did use special badges that logged attendees’ movements in case they came in contact with someone who tested positive for the virus, according to The Hill.

Health officials said they tested 792 delegates and staffers and only four showed positive results.
