Plexiglass removed from debate stage after Trump, Biden test negative for COVID-19



Thursday night’s presidential debate will not feature plexiglass partitions after all.

The campaigns of both President Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden supported the removal of the barriers that were installed on the Nashville debate stage as a coronavirus precaution, Frank Fahrenkopf, the head of the debate commission, told CNN.

But with news that Trump and Biden both tested negative for COVID-19 hours ahead of their final debate, medical advisers to the debate commission felt the measure was unnecessary, the report said.

White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci was also consulted — and gave the move his blessing, Fahrenkopf said.

Fauci “agreed that the plexiglass wouldn’t do anything,” according to Fahrenkopf.
