The president had been scheduled to hold an afternoon rally in La Crosse, but Mayor Tim Kabat's office confirmed to ABC News on Thursday that they had reached out to the Trump campaign asking them to postpone or cancel this Saturday's event. Shortly later, the Trump campaign announced that it would be holding a rally in Janesville instead of La Crosse.

Meanwhile, the president is still scheduled to hold a Saturday evening rally in Green Bay.

The Trump campaign said like the other campaign events for President Donald Trump, those attending will receive a mask that they are encouraged to wear and have access to hand sanitizer. 

"Americans are enthusiastic for President Trump’s re-election, and they want to and have a right to gather under the First Amendment to hear from the President of the United States. For the President’s outdoor events in Wisconsin, like his other campaign events, everyone attending will receive a temperature check, be provided a mask they are encouraged to wear and have access to plenty of hand sanitizer," Trump Campaign Deputy National Press Secretary Courtney Parella told ABC News.

Both La Crosse and Green Bay are considered "red zones" by the White House coronavirus task force according to a recent report.
