Kamala Harris Yanked Off Campaign Trail After Staffer Tests Positive

The news comes just weeks after President Trump briefly suspended his time on the road after coming down with a case of COVID-19.

As coronavirus cases continue to rise around the country, it seems that very few of us are truly “safe” from COVID-19.

Well, sure there are probably some recluses out in the boonies who will never come within a earshot of a case of the illness, but those of us who do our shopping at the grocery store are undoubtedly having closer calls than we’ve wanted to imagine.

Even the President of the United States came down with a brief, albeit scary COVID-19 infection; one that landed him at Walter Reed Medical Center for a few days.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris’ communications director and a “non-staff flight crew member” involved in the campaign have tested positive for the coronavirus, Joe Biden’s presidential campaign announced Thursday morning.

Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said that all in-person campaigning by the senator from California — including stops planned for today in the crucial battleground state of North Carolina — have been canceled for the rest of the week and weekend.

Dillon said the campaign learned late Wednesday night that both Liz Allen, Harris’ communications director, and a non-staff flight crew member tested positive for COVID-19.

“Senator Harris was not in close contact, as defined by the CDC, with either of these individuals during the two days prior to their positive tests; as such, there is no requirement for quarantine,” Dillon announced in a statement.

Harris’ campaign released a statement that the candidate has tested negative in the meantime, and that the decision was made out of an abundance of caution.
