WATCH: How Trump’s schedule is affected by his COVID-19 diagnosis

Following President Donald Trump’s Oct. 1 positive COVID-19 diagnosis, the White House doctor said he can continue his work as president. But, "things are not the same, things are not ‘business as usual,’" PBS NewsHour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor said. Alcindor noted that the president will not be able to campaign as he usually has — usually at rallies with large crowds, many of whom were not socially distant from one another or wearing masks. Trump was scheduled to hold a rally in Florida on Friday, which has since been canceled. The question came up during a PBS NewsHour livestream conversation between Alcindor and PBS NewsHour’s William Brangham. Watch the full conversation here:
