(RepublicanPress.org) – The COVID-19 pandemic has no regard for the usual issues separating Americans, like one’s political leanings. Nevertheless, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) have done more than their fair share of politicizing the virus. In a twist of irony, COVID-19 is now impacting them.
On October 15, Harris announced the cancellation of campaign events after two staff members tested positive for the coronavirus, promising to keep America appraised of future developments. Affected personnel included Harris’ communication director Liz Allen and an unnamed member of her flight crew.
Both the crew member and the staff member were wearing N95 masks at all points they were near me, and our doctors believe that we were not exposed under CDC guidelines. Out of an abundance of caution, I will cancel travel through Sunday and continue to campaign virtually.

Setting a positive example, President Donald Trump addressed the news during a Greenville, North Carolina campaign stop, stating, “We extend our best wishes.”

President Trump, along with First Lady Melania Trump, tested positive for the coronavirus the first week of October. The president spent three days at Walter Reed Medical Center as a precautionary measure.
Both Biden and Harris tested negative for COVID-19 this week, and the former vice president is expected to stick to his campaign schedule this week, as is President Trump.
