Kamala Harris spokeswoman, flight crew member test positive for COVID-19


Kamala Harris’ travel has been canceled through the weekend after two people she recently traveled with tested positive for COVID-19, Joe Biden’s campaign manager said on Thursday.

The Democratic vice presidential candidate’s communications director Liz Allen as well as a non-staff flight crew member were diagnosed with the bug after flying with Harris on Oct. 8, according to campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon.

She said Harris was not in close contact with either on the flight but that the campaign was nixing her schedule through Sunday “out of an abundance of caution and in line with our campaign’s commitment to the highest levels of precaution.”

The California senator will instead participate in “robust and aggressive” virtual campaign events and return to in-person campaigning on Monday.

O’Malley Dillon said the campaign learned of the two diagnoses late Wednesday night.

“Neither of these people have had contact with Vice President Biden, Senator Harris or any other staffers since testing positive or in the 48 hours prior to their positive test results,” she said in a statement.
