"I think if he still has COVID, we shouldn't have a debate", Biden, a former U.S. vice-president, told reporters on his return from Gettysburg.

The two rivals clashed in a controversial and chaotic first debate on September 29 prompting the CPD, the group that manages USA presidential election debates, pledged to take steps to ensure a more orderly discussion. On Monday, Biden said he was still open to debating Trump next week.

Also testing positive on Tuesday was Mr Miller, a top policy adviser and Trump speechwriter, who has been an architect of the president's "America First" foreign policy and restrictive immigration measures.

Trump's press office on Tuesday released a memo from Conley stating that the president had reported no symptoms during his first morning back in the White House. The first family and some of Trump's guests refused to wear masks at last week's debate.

Based on media reporting and TV images from last weekend's White House event in the Rose Garden, Walensky said it appears Pence was sitting for longer than 15 minutes within 6 feet of people who subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.

The vice presidential debate will see additional measures come into play in hopes of avoiding coronavirus, especially after President Trump was briefly hospitalized following his diagnosis of the disease that has killed more than 211,000 people in the US. "And so I'll be guided by the guidelines of the Cleveland Clinic, and what the docs say is the right thing to do-if and when [Trump] shows up for debate". However, she has much less experience on debate stages than the vice president. Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence is expected to feature plexiglass as a safety barrier.

Earlier yesterday, Biden gave a speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the US Civil War.

"And here's the thing, on January 28, the vice president and the president were informed about the nature of this pandemic", Harris said. Wearing a mask isn't a political statement. "As president, that is precisely what I will do".

Latest polls forecast a clear victory for Biden, with CNN giving the Democrat a national advantage of 57 percent to 41 percent among likely voters, with women voters going 66 to 32 percent in his favor.

The challenge for Harris will be to represent the Biden campaign line clearly and forcefully.
