Kamala Harris Cancels Campaign Travel After Staff Tests Positive For COVID
Sen. Kamala Harris has officially cancelled all of her political travel for the next week after several individuals who are part of the Biden campaign have tested positive for COVID-19.
Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon, stated that she was made aware on Wednesday that Liz Allen, the communications director for Harris, tested positive for the illness, along with a non-staff flight crew member.
Since Harris has not had any close contact with the individuals who have tested positive, she will not be in self-quarantine. However, the vice presidential running mate will also not be doing any in-person events until Monday out of caution.
“She will keep a robust and aggressive schedule of virtual campaign activities to reach voters all across the country during this time,” Dillon wrote in a statement Thursday.
Biden, Harris, nor any other aides have been near Allen or the unnamed non-staff member since they tested positive or in the 48 hours prior to their positive test results, Dillon added.
Harris was originally scheduled to fly out to North Carolina Thursday, but as stated above, that has been cancelled.
COVID-19 is a virus that is not a respecter of persons. It will strike when and where it pleases. The lesson for the Democratic Party is not to point fingers and play the blame game because this disease spreads. Even folks who wear masks all the time still managed to contract it.
Here’s to hoping for a full recover for Ms. Allen and the flight crew member.
