Kamala Harris has announced that she will suspend traveling for just two days after one of her staffers tested positive for coronavirus, despite official CDC guidance saying those exposed should self-isolate for 14 days.
“Campaign announces Kamala Harris is suspending her travel until Sunday, Oct.18, after her communications director, Liz Allen, and a non-staff flight crew member tested positive for coronavirus,” tweeted CNN’s Sarah Mucha.
Communications director Liz Allen tested positive for COVID-19 as did a non-staff flight crew member.
However, the Harris campaign claims that Biden’s running mate “was not in close contact” with either of the individuals and therefore doesn’t have to quarantine.
“Kamala Harris has had contact with someone tested positive but is only suspending travel for 2 days,” commented Raheem Kassam. “Just remember how the media would be spinning this if it wasn’t Kamala Harris.”
