Kamala Harris’ campaign will be pausing this weekend’s travel after two members of her team have tested positive for COVID-19.
According to CNN, the two people that have tested positive is a flight crew member and Kamala’s communications director Liz Allen. Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon says that Kamala has not been in close contact with either person.
Nonetheless, her trip to North Carolina on Thursday has been canceled, and she will not be back on the road until Monday.
O’Malley said, “Neither of these people have had contact with Vice President Biden, Senator Harris or any other staffers since testing positive or in the 48 hours prior to their positive test results.”
She continued, “After being with Senator Harris, both individuals attended personal, non-campaign events in the past week. Under our campaign’s strict health protocols, both individuals had to be tested before returning to their work with the campaign from these personal events. These protocols help protect the campaign, the staff, and anyone who they may have contact with; the importance of having such protocols — which include testing before resuming duties, regular testing while working in-person, isolation after time off, and masking and distancing while on campaign duties — have been illustrated once again.”
O’Malley also noted that Kamala also tested negative for COVID-19 twice since October 8th.
As you all know, Donald Trump tested positive for COVID-19 earlier month, and despite his diagnosis, he still made public appearances. Including a drive around the hospital to see his supporters, and also an early return to the White House where he had a viral photo-op moment.
