Both Biden and Sanders have cancelled their campaign rallies in Cleveland over coronavirus concerns.

This is a first according to CNN,

The cancelations in Ohio are the first major political rallies to be called off because of concerns about coronavirus, as presidential campaigns face questions about whether they can keep their candidates on the road and continue to hold indoor events amid warnings from officials about large public gatherings.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders both admit that they've cut way down on shaking hands on the campaign trail.  In fact, campaign volunteers for Joe Biden were squirting hand sanitizer in the hands of every person that entered the rally in Detroit Monday night.  Biden told CNN that he find himself doing more fist bumps than hand shakes.

The CDC suggests than anyone over 60 should not travel except for medical attention.  Side note: Joe Biden is 77 and Bernie Sanders is 78.
