- Joe Biden said Saturday he hadn't been tested during the day
- Biden's last test was on Friday, when both he and his wife Jill tested negative
- The 77-year-old said his next test will be on Sunday
- Fears remain that Biden may have been infected during Tuesday's debate

Joe Biden wasn't tested for COVID-19 on Saturday and won't be tested until Sunday, he said.
The 77-year-old is at high risk due to his age if he catches the virus. Four days ago he was with Donald Trump at the presidential debate in Cleveland. Trump has since tested positive for the virus and is in the hospital.
On Saturday morning, Biden was at mass in a church in downtown Wilmington, Delaware – his hometown.
As he was leaving the church, he was asked if he had been tested today.
"No – but I'll be in the morning," he said.
Then he got into his motorcade without answering other shouted questions.

Biden continues his campaign despite fears of the Trump campaign.
However, they removed the personal attack ads.
The former Vice President is due to travel to Florida with his wife Jill on Monday.
On Friday, when news of Trump's diagnosis was confirmed, Biden gave a message from the unit, stating in his Grand Rapids speech that this could not be a "partisan moment".
Americans, he said, must "come together as a nation".
Biden expressed sympathy for Trump following his COVID-19 diagnosis, saying, “Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a speedy recovery. We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the President and his family. & # 39;
Biden has taken a cautious approach in his personal campaigns by hosting small, socially aloof events while following state and local public health recommendations regarding masks.
Trump has repeatedly ridiculed him for being stuck in his basement avoiding mass rallies.

Biden only recently started in-person acquisitions after mostly virtual events took place due to the pandemic.
Trump, on the other hand, continued to host controversial large-scale personal rallies where participants were packed up and seen without a mask.
Biden's personal campaign comes at a crucial point in the presidential race, just weeks before the election.
Earlier this week he stepped up with a 7-hour train tour of Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Next week, in addition to visiting Florida, he will have his first campaign event in Arizona.
