Harris cancels travel after top aide tests positive for COVID-19

Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has canceled her travel until Monday after her Communications director Liz Allen and a member of her flight crew tested positive for coronavirus, , the Biden campaign said.

The campaign said Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, both tested negative on Thursday.

“I will be transparent with you about any test results that I do receive,” Harris wrote in a tweet. “In the meantime, remember: wear a mask, practice social distancing, and wash your hands regularly. It is possible to stop the spread.”

Neither infected person was in contact with presidential nominee Joe Biden.

“This shows how seriously we take Covid, how we have since March done everything in our power as a campaign to ensure the safety of our staff and our volunteers and voters, and we’ll continue to do so,” campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said.
