Covid hits the Biden Campaign

Biden campaign cancels Harris travel after aide tests positive for COVID-19
Two people involved in Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign, including the communications director for Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the campaign said Thursday.

Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said neither of the infected individuals were in close contact, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with Harris or Biden in the 48 hour period prior to their positive tests, so there would be no requirement for the candidates to self-quarantine.

2. The campaign knows what it's doing.

The campaign said it first learned of the positive cases involving Harris communications director Liz Allen and a “non-staff flight crew member” late Wednesday night.

Both of the individuals were on a flight with Harris on Oct. 8 but tested negative before and after the flight. Harris has taken two Polymerase Chain Reaction coronavirus tests since then, and both were negative.

Harris last tested negative for the coronavirus on Wednesday. The campaign says she will be tested again on Thursday.
