Vice President Mike Pence will debate Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris on October 8 at 1am GMT. Pence has tested negative for Covid-19 in recent days but was in recent contact with various individuals who have since tested positive. Plexiglass barriers will be installed but health experts stated that they are fairly useless with airborne viruses and recommend moving the debate online.

"Those plexiglass barriers are really only going to be effective if the vice president or Kamala Harris are spitting at each other," so Ellie Murray, an epidemiologist at Boston University.
