JULIE HYMAN: Time now for News On the Move. Joe Biden's campaign is halting the travel of his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, until Monday. This news comes after two people, a flight crew member and [INAUDIBLE] Communications Director Liz Allen tested positive for coronavirus. Biden Campaign Manager Jen O'Malley Dillon said in a statement that Harris was not in close contact with either person.

ADAM SHAPIRO: University of Alabama Football Coach Nick Saban announced that he tested positive for COVID-19 along with Alabama Athletic Director Greg Byrne. The 68-year-old Coach Saban is tested daily and says he currently has no symptoms. That followed news that president's son, 14-year-old Barron Trump, also tested positive for the coronavirus but exhibited no symptoms. His mother, First Lady Melania Trump, released the news yesterday and said Barron has since tested negative. His father says Barron is fine.

JULIE HYMAN: Wells Fargo has fired more than 100 employees suspected of falsely taking advantage of federal loans earmarked for coronavirus relief. That's according to multiple reports. The bank conducted an internal investigation that found the workers made false representations when applying for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan that's provided by the Small Business Administration. The SBA inspector general reported in July that nine banks had reported almost $200 million in suspicious transactions tied to its loan programs.

ADAM SHAPIRO: Robert O'Neill, the former Navy SEAL who shot and killed Osama bin Laden, criticized President Trump who is spreading a conspiracy theory that the Navy SEAL killed bin Laden's body double in 2011. O'Neill tweeted, quote, "Very brave men said goodbye to their kids to go kill Osama bin Laden. We were given the order by President Obama. It was not a body double." Trump had been tweeting a QAnon conspiracy about the raid on bin Laden. The White House has not commented.
