Washington DC, Vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has suspended all in-person events until Monday after several of her campaign staff tested positive for coronavirus. Harris’ communications director and a flight crew member for her October 8th trip to Arizona have tested positive. Biden and his team all wore N95 masks during the entirety of the flights, and the individual who tested positive also wore a mask. Apparently no amount of ‘virtue signaling “, finger pointing and mask wearing for the cameras stops COVID19.
Harris and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden spent several hours together that day through multiple campaign stops, private meetings and a joint appearance in front of reporters at an airport.
According to the statement, Biden was not in “close contact” — as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — with the individual, who was not named. The campaign claims Biden was over 50 feet from the individual at all times. The individual who tested positive for coronavirus flew with the presidential nominee during his trip to Ohio on Monday and Florida on Tuesday. The campaign said that they were seated in the last row of the 737 aircraft during all of the flights — “well beyond the standard two rows (in front and behind) of distance the CDC generally uses when conducting contact investigations on aircraft for infectious diseases.”
