Joe Biden stokes concerns he's not social distancing as staffer puts hand on ...

A staffer who put her hand on Joe Biden's shoulder as he left an event in Florida – has sparked concerns that the former Vice President's team isn't social distancing around him.

Biden gave a speech at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami on Monday and his supporters were out in force waving banners and cheering for the presidential candidate.

But as he left the event Biden was greeted by his trips director Ashley Williams, who had worked as Jill Biden's aide when she was second lady. 

In exclusive photos obtained by DailyMail.com, Williams is seen approaching Biden and, standing close to him, appeared to place a caring hand on the 77-year-old's shoulder while offering words of support.

Both Biden and Williams were wearing face masks but critics will likely jump on the incident and slam the Democratic candidate's team for not sticking to government social distancing guidelines of staying 6ft away.

An onlooker told DailyMail.com: 'Lots of people were approaching Biden and that morning his wife had pulled him away from getting too close.

'But when this attractive young woman approached him he seemed more than happy to chat to her at close proximity.

'She was very close to him and put her arm on his shoulder.'

Earlier that same day, Biden's wife Jill had to pull him back from reporters in Delaware when she felt he was not maintaining enough distance for safety. 

The couple were headed for the campaign trail in Florida, and Joe stopped to talk to reporters before flying to Miami.

As he was speaking, Jill walked up behind him and grabbed his arms, pulling him away from the reporters.

'I'm sorry,' Joe said, as Jill repositioned him.
