Crew member on Joe Biden's plane tests positive for Covid-19

Crew member on Joe Biden's plane tests positive for Covid-19”

Harris was to visit North Carolina on Thursday and to travel daily until Election Day on November 3.

The statement said the person who tested positive was an "administrative member" of the company that charters Biden's 737 aircraft but was in the last row of the plane and "did not even have passing contact" with the former Vice President. Following the positive cases, Harris had suspended her campaign travel as a precaution.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump had sent her best wishes.

According to ABC7 NY, Harris has tested negative for COVID-19, but is choosing to shelter in place and self-quarantine "out of an abundance of caution".

"This shows how seriously we take Covid, how we have since March done everything in our power as a campaign to ensure the safety of our staff and our volunteers and voters, and we'll continue to do so", campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon said on a call with reporters.

In fact, both Harris and Biden expressed their sympathies for the president and first lady, and their campaign ceased negative ads for several days. "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", she said.

The news comes after Harris' communications director, Liz Allen, tested positive for the virus on Wednesday night. No members of my staff were in contact with this crew member either.

"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".
