DEMOCRATIC Senator Kamala Harris and US Vice President Mike Pence are taking part in a vice presidential debate at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, October 7.
The debate is taking place one week after the first presidential debate between Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and US President Donald Trump.
Donald Trump was since admitted to hospital after testing positive for COVID-19 on Friday and spent three nights at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre before returning to the White House.
The 90-minute debate is moderated by USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page and will be divided into nine segments of 10 minutes each.
The Commission on Presidential Debates has had to introduce new measures to help prevent the spread of coronavirus such as limiting audience size in the room, adding distance between seats, incorporating personal health screening and other safety measures.
