Harris cancels trip to North Carolina after staffer tests COVID-19 positive
WILMINGTON, DE (AP) — Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris is suspending in-person events until Monday after two people associated with the campaign tested positive for coronavirus.
Joe Biden’s campaign said Thursday that he had no exposure, though he and Harris spent several hours campaigning together in Arizona on Oct. 8.
Biden and Harris have both had multiple negative COVID tests since then. Harris had been scheduled to travel Thursday to North Carolina and Friday to Ohio.
Since Harris could not travel to Asheville and Charlotte on Thursday, she announced she would hold a virtual event instead and join Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles, Congresswoman Alma Adams to talk about early voting.
The campaign told reporters Thursday morning that Harris’ communications director and a flight crew member tested positive after a recent campaign trip.
