Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris is canceling her campaign travel through Sunday, after two people in her campaign traveling party tested positive for COVID-19.
The Biden campaign announced in a Thursday statement that Harris’ communications director Liz Allen and a flight crew member, who is not on her campaign staff, recently tested positive for the disease.
Harris was not in “close contact” with either of the people in the 48 hours before their positive test results and thus does not need to quarantine under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines, the Biden campaign said, but Harris will still hold off on traveling and do virtual events instead “out of an abundance of caution.”
Harris, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has been participating in the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett remotely.
