Joe Biden's team are said to adhere to strict social distancing rules in an effort to shield the 77-year-old from the coronavirus.
New details shed light on his team's approach to protecting the Democratic presidential candidate, including orders for him to 'keep back' at public events.
Biden's cars and planes are also said to be constantly disinfected, as is the equipment he uses right before he gives speeches, Politico reports.
Journalists are temperature checked with only a select few allowed to have access and those attending his events are kept in spaces marked out with a tape measure.
Biden, who is rarely seen without a mask in public, is also said to wear one when the limited members of his team allowed in his home do visit.
And campaign aides say if someone takes a sip of water, they are said to turn their head away from others. Crowds are kept to low numbers and reporters segregated with sticky notes marking safe spots.
