Senator Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence are currently on stage at the 2020 Vice Presidential Debate with a shield of plexiglass in between them.
The debate, which is the only one for the VP candidates, is taking place at the University of Utah on Wednesday (October 7) in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The candidates are sitting 12 feet apart and there are two plexiglass barriers, which were requested by the Biden campaign.
