LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A member aboard Joe Biden's plane has tested positive for COVID-19, the presidential candidate said in a tweet Thursday.

"During our contact tracing, we discovered around noon today that a member of the company that charters my airplane has also tested positive for COVID," Biden said. "This crew member was on the plane with me, but was more than 50 feet away."

However, Biden said his latest COVID-19 test came back negative.

"Our campaign’s contact tracing remains ongoing, and my team will continue to share any significant developments with the American people," Biden said. "If anything, let this serve as an example of the importance of wearing masks and keeping a safe, social distance."
