Senator Kamala Harris will travel to Jacksonville and Orlando on Monday to campaign during the first day of the early personal vote in Florida.
The visits will end a brief travel hiatus from Harris sparked by several employees who test positive for COVID-19.
No further details were disclosed about the locations and timing of the campaign shutdown.
According to Joe Biden’s campaign manager, Jane O’Malley Dillon, the campaign learned late Wednesday that two people connected to the operation had tested positive for the coronavirus. By 10 a.m. Thursday, O’Malley Dillon had publicly identified a senior aide to Vice Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris as HIV positive and confirmed that the campaign would temporarily suspend travel for California Senator and husband Doug Imhoff.
Before the end of the day, the campaign announced a third positive case linked to the Biden campaign plane and Biden and Harris ‘updated negative COVID-19 tests, along with medical experts’ explanations of why they believed Biden had never been exposed and would not have to cancel the upcoming travel.
“Because of the protocols we have, we were able to obtain this information, and we were able to determine what is happening here,” said O’Malley Dillon, referring to the regular campaign testing of Biden, Harris and those traveling with them, along with the strict application of masks and social distancing in all events.
Harris worked from her home in Washington on Thursday, according to one of his aides, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the senator’s plans. You’ll campaign around the weekend before travel resumes Monday with the trip to Florida.
