The announcement stipulates that the two candidates will duel with Democratic opponent Joe Biden on a night when the two candidates were to meet for their second debate.
Mr. Biden appears at a similar Philadelphia City Hall event that is televised by ABC America.
NBC said Mr. Trump was at least 3.6 meters from presenter Savannah Guthrie and the audience.
Mr Trump, who tested positive for COVID-19 on October 2 and spent three days at Walter Reed Military Hospital, took a coronavirus test on Tuesday that was carried out by the National Institutes of Health.
Both the clinical director of the NIH, Dr. Clifford Lane, as well as Dr. Fauci checked Mr. Trump’s medical records and said they had a high level of confidence that the president “won’t shed infectious viruses.”
Mr Trump’s ability to reach a national television audience on Thursday was partially dependent on Dr. Fauci, who had expressed his anger over the Trump campaign for the past few days for using one of his statements in a campaign ad.
Dr. Fauci said a quote used in the campaign ad was taken out of context.
An official matchup between the Republican President and Mr Biden that was scheduled for Thursday in Miami but was canceled when Mr Trump refused to attend a virtual event.
Both town halls will start at the same time, but Mr. Biden will have the final say.
The ABC event, moderated by George Stephanopoulos, lasts 90 minutes with an additional half an hour of analysis.
Mr Trump’s town hall on NBC is scheduled for an hour.
In addition to being unable to compare the two men side by side, the dueling events are likely to be seen by far fewer people.
The first debate between the two men last month was watched by an estimated 73.1 million people, rating firm Nielsen said.
An estimated 6.7 million people saw Mr. Biden at an NBC News-sponsored town hall last week.
Like Thursday’s Trump event, it was simulated on MSNBC, CNBC and streamed online.
Mr Trump’s town hall with Stephanopoulos on September 15 was seen by 3.8 million people.
Trump’s town hall on NBC on Thursday will be held outdoors at the Perez Art Museum in Miami, and viewers will be socially distant, wear a mask, and undergo a temperature check before entering the venue, NBC said.
