From News4Jax:

Erin Isaac, the spokeswoman for the host committee of the Jacksonville portion of the convention, said in an emailed memo on Monday that “everyone attending the convention within the perimeter will be tested and temperature checked each day.”

Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee will be skipping the convention, too:
