Harris suspends travel after staffer tests COVID-19 positive

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden’s presidential campaign says vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will suspend in-person events until Monday after two people associated with the campaign tested positive for coronavirus.

Harris has tested negative for the coronavirus.

The campaign says both Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, tested negative for the virus Thursday.

Harris, Joe Biden’s running mate, was scheduled to campaign in North Carolina, which she has replaced with a virtual event.

The campaign announced Thursday morning that Harris’ communications director and a noncampaign staff member of the fight crew for her travel tested positive for the virus. The campaign says Harris did not have close contact with either within the past 48 hours.

The campaign said Biden had no exposure, though he and Harris spent several hours campaigning together in Arizona on Oct. 8
