DNC announces no audience at upcoming primary debate because of coronavirus outbreak

https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/10/politics/dnc-coronavirus-primary-debate/index.html

With the coronavirus pandemic sweeping across the nation, Democrats announced Tuesday that the CNN-Univision Democratic presidential debate set for this weekend will be held without an audience.

The Democratic National Committee's decision to forgo an audience came at the request of the campaigns of Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, as health officials urged people to avoid large gatherings and major events continued to be canceled for the foreseeable future. Both campaigns canceled events in Ohio Tuesday night following Republican Gov. Mike DeWine urging large gatherings be canceled and sporting events be held without fans.

"DNC has been in regular communication with local health officials and the Mayor's office, which advised that we could proceed as planned," DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa said in a statement. "Nevertheless, our number one priority has and will continue to be the safety of our staff, campaigns, Arizonans and all those involved in the debate. We will continue to remain in daily contact with all stakeholders through Sunday."
