NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders illustrated at Sunday night's debate that they are well aware of the new social norms: Instead of a a traditional handshake, the pair opted for an elbow bump (see video above).

As they approached each other on the stage, they both had a smirk on their faces, as they knew this was going to be how they would greet each other. 

Their podiums were also placed 6 feet apart, as part of "social distancing."
