BREAKING NEWS: Crew member on Joe Biden's campaign plane tests positive for COVID-19

Joe Biden's campaign announced Thursday afternoon that a third person who traveled with the Democratic ticket has tested positive for COVID-19.

Biden's Campaign Manager Jen O'Malley Dillon referred to the individual as a 'administrative member of the Aviation company that charters Vice President Biden’s aircraft' who was 'was over 50 feet' from Biden at all times - meaning the former vice president doesn't have to quarantine.

Earlier Thursday, the Biden campaign revealed that two individuals associated with vice presidential nominee, Kamala Harris had tested positive for the coronavirus - resulting in travel for Harris and her husband Douglas Emhoff to be cancelled.

They were a non-staff flight crew member and Liz Allen, Harris' communications director, said Dillion in a statement. "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,"Dillon said.

The third individual traveled on Biden's charter plane to Ohio on Monday and then Florida on Tuesday. Biden has remained in Delaware since. He's expected to proceed with his scheduled town hall in Philadelphia on Thursday night. He was tested for COVID Wednesday night and was negative.

"As part of our regular routine of testing, Vice President Biden underwent PCR testing for COVID-19 last night and COVID-19 was not detected,"the campaign said Thursday.More here.
