Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris has suspended in-person events until Monday after two people associated with her campaign tested positive for the coronavirus.
The Joe Biden’s presidential campaign said Biden had no exposure, although he spent time with Harris campaigning in Arizona on October 8.
That was a week ago, but both candidates wore N95 masks to protect them the virus.

The Biden campaign told reporters that Harris’ communication director and a traveling staff member for her travel to Arizona tested positive after the October trip.
Harris was scheduled to travel to North Carolina on Thursday to encourage voters to cast their ballots early.
The campaign said it did not believe she had been exposed and that the cancelation of in-person events was taken out of the abundance of caution.
The campaign is also doing contact tracing and taking all other precautions, according the CDC guidelines.
Meanwhile President Donald Trump is traveling across the country and campaigning at packed rallies. He’s downplaying the disease and claiming he’s immune.
Commentators noted that the Biden campaign is doing what the Trump campaign has failed to do.
