(CNSNews.com) - Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is currently the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, told CNN on Tuesday that "anybody who walks into the house" where he lives is wearing masks and gloves.
"I'm just following the instructions that--and anybody who walks into the house, from the Secret Service on, they're wearing masks and gloves," Biden told Jake Tapper.
In the same interview, Biden said he had not been tested for coronavirus, but that he is being cautious:
"I'm just following the instructions that--and anybody who walks into the house, from the Secret Service on, they're wearing masks and gloves. So we're just taking the precautions that we're told are the responsible things to do in terms of keeping our distance."
Biden, when he gives interviews from his basement camera, does not wear mask or gloves.
Biden is 77 years old, and until recently, he spent many days mixing with voters in multiple states. He coughed and cleared his throat several times in the interviews he gave on Tuesday.
