Democrat Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris has suspended travel and plans after it was revealed that two of her staffers tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday.
One of the individuals was Harris’s communications director, Liz Allen. Fortunately for Harris, the two were not in close contact since the positive test.
The campaign issued a statement saying, “Senator Harris was not in close contact, as defined by the CDC, with either of these individuals during the two days prior to their positive tests; as such, there is no requirement for quarantine. Regardless, out of an abundance of caution and in line with our campaign’s commitment to the highest levels of precaution, we are canceling Senator Haris’s travel through Sunday, October 18.”
Normal campaign activities are expected to resume on October 19th assuming there are no new positive tests.
Democrat candidate Joe Biden was not around either individual 48 hours prior to the positive tests and as such should be in the clear.
This event stands as a reminder for any of those who are in high-risk groups for coronavirus should continue to be cautious.
