Biden campaign cancels Harris travel after communications director tests positive for COVID-19
By Morgan Chalfant - 10/15/20 09:51 AM EDT

Two people involved in Democratic nominee Joe Biden's presidential campaign, including the communications director for vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the campaign said Thursday.

Jen O’Malley Dillon, Biden’s campaign manager, said in a statement that the campaign would cancel Harris’ travel through Sunday “out of an abundance of caution.”

O’Malley Dillon said that Harris was not in close contact, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with Liz Allen, her communications director, or the other individual during the two days prior to their positive tests.

Harris suspends travel after staffer tests COVID-19 positive
Associated Press, Oct 16, 2020

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden’s presidential campaign said Thursday that vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will suspend in-person events until Monday after two people associated with the campaign tested positive for coronavirus. The campaign said Biden had no exposure, though he and Harris spent several hours campaigning together in Arizona on Oct. 8.

Harris was scheduled to travel Thursday to North Carolina for events encouraging voters to cast early ballots.

The campaign told reporters Thursday morning that Harris’ communications director and a traveling staff member for her travel to Arizona tested positive after that Oct. 8 trip.

Harris and Biden spent several hours together that day through multiple campaign stops, private meetings and a joint appearance in front of reporters at an airport. They were masked at all times in public, and aides said they were masked in private, as well. Biden and Harris have each had multiple negative tests since then.

Biden is scheduled to attend an ABC News town hall airing live at 8 p.m. EDT.

How convenient.  After her performance yesterday at the POTUS hearing they should keep her locked up.

She'll return to "travel" as soon as they all get their Hunter/Joe stories straight.

BREAKING: Biden-Harris Campaign Staffers Test Positive for COVID-19

Kamala Harris has suspended in-person events until Monday after two campaign staffers tested positive for COVID, reports the Associated Press. Harris was supposed to travel to the battleground state of North Carolina on Thursday.

The campaign insists that Joe Biden was not exposed to the virus, but he and Senator Harris spent several hours together last week while campaigning in Arizona. According to the report, Kamala’s communications director and a traveling staff member tested positive after that trip.

At least two other cases have been linked to Biden campaign events. Earlier this week it was reported that two confirmed cases of COVID-19 were traced to a Biden campaign event in Minnesota. Biden’s campaign events are notorious for being minimally attended with multiple social-distancing protocols, including strict enforcement of mask-wearing. In Nevada last week, Biden wore a mask during a drive-in campaign event, where attendees remained in their cars, even as he spoke. Biden infamously removed his mask to cough during that event.

So, was this in spite of "doing everything right"? Or were things "done right" for show and masks, etc. dropped when cameras were off?

Is this her current communications officer?  Or is the one who is now the chief censorship officer for Twitter?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Nice!  Top Notch and an A plus for subtlety.

Less subtle retort from yours truly:

That explains the "Y" shaped coffin waiting on her!

Just last night on MSNBC, Kamala Harris bragged about her & Biden’s staff not getting COVID because they wore masks constantly. Maybe they should look at *the science* showing most COVID positive patients wore masks. #MasksDontWork #TheyreLyingToYou https://thefederalist.com/2020/10/12/cdc-study-finds-overwhelming-majority-of-people-getting-coronavirus-wore-masks/

The Biden campaign says that Joe Biden was on a plane twice with a person who tested positive for COVID, but Biden was not in close contact with the person and wore an N95 mask on the flights. The campaign says there's no need for Biden to quarantine because of those precautions.
