It marks Harris' first visit to Cleveland since she headlined the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party's annual dinner during her presidential campaign. Both travelled with the Democratic senator during a campaign trip in Arizona on October 8. She was not within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes with either of them. O'Malley Dillon added that all other staffers on the flight have also tested negative since October 8.
