Will the vice presidential debate be in person?

Yes, but Harris and Pence will be separated by plexiglass, and a plexiglass sheet will be used to separate Harris and Pence from Page. The Commission on Presidential Debates approved the plans, which are also supported by the Cleveland Clinic, which is helping to set health protocols.

The debate commission decided to move Harris and Pence from seven feet apart to thirteen feet apart. However, while Harris' team supported the plan to use plexiglass, a spokeswoman for Pence, Katie Miller, said: "If Sen. Harris wants to use a fortress around herself, have at it."

Last night's debate made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.

"The CPD will be carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly. The Commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night's debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates."
