NBC said Trump would be at least 12 feet from Guthrie and the audience, who will be socially distanced, required to wear a mask and submit to a temperature check before entering the venue, NBC said.
Meanwhile, Biden’s town hall in Philadelphia, which will be moderated by George Stephanopoulos, will air on ABC at the same time as Trump’s but will run for 90 minutes.
Florida is a critical battleground state for Trump, who is trailing Biden by significant margins nationally and in key swing states with the election less than three weeks away.
Biden made a stop in the state earlier this week.
Trump has returned to holding large campaign rallies this week after doctors cleared him for public events following his recovery from the coronavirus after a three-day hospitalization at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
Observers expect far fewer people to tune in for the town hall events than the estimated 73.1 million people who watched the first debate between the two last month, the Nielsen company said.
An estimated 6.7 million people saw Biden at an NBC News-sponsored town hall last week. Like the Trump event on Thursday will be, it was simulcast on MSNBC, CNBC and streamed online.
Trump’s town hall with Stephanopoulos on Sept. 15 was seen by 3.8 million people, Nielsen said.
The final debate between the candidates is scheduled Oct. 22 in Nashville, Tennessee.
