Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala D. Harris is canceling travel plans through Sunday after her communications director tested positive for the coronavirus.
The Biden campaign said Thursday that Liz Allen, Ms. Harris’s communications director, and a “non-staff flight crew member” have tested positive for COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
“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,” said Jen O’Malley Dillon, Joseph R. Biden’s campaign manager. “Regardless, out of an abundance of caution and in line with our campaign’s commitment to the highest levels of precaution, we are canceling Senator Harris’s travel through Sunday, October 18th.”
