The second debate between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden will be virtual, with both candidates appearing from separate remote locations, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Thursday — nearly a week after Trump announced he’d tested positive for the coronavirus.
The debate, scheduled for Oct. 15, “will take the form of a town meeting,” organizers said.
Trump’s announcement of his positive COVID-19 test had thrown the status of all future 2020 debates in doubt. The debate between Vice President Mike Pence and California Sen. Kamala Harris went on as planned Wednesday night with on-stage dividers between the candidates after both had tested negative for the coronavirus.
Steve Scully of C-SPAN is still set to moderate the second presidential debate, from Miami.
