NBC News will host a town hall with President Donald Trump in Miami this Thursday.

"TODAY" anchor Savannah Guthrie will moderate the one-hour town hall outside the Pérez Art Museum at 8 p.m., the network announced Wednesday.

According to NBC News, Dr. Clifford Lane, clinical director at the National Institutes of Health, and Dr. Anthony Fauci reviewed Trump’s medical data and determined "with a high degree of confidence" that he is "not shedding infectious virus."

Still, Guthrie and Trump will be at least 12 feet apart and the audience will also be socially distanced.

The new comes after ABC News announced last week that it was holding a town hall with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, also on Thursday at 8 p.m.

ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos will moderate the town hall with Biden in Philadelphia.

The second presidential debate was originally supposed to be held on Thursday but was canceled after a back-and-forth between Trump and Biden over the format and scheduling. That debate will instead take place on Oct. 22.
