President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19, according to the White House.
A statement from the WH:
This morning, President Biden tested positive for COVID-19. He is fully vaccinated and
twice boosted and experiencing very mild symptoms. He has begun taking Paxlovid.
Consistent with CDC guidelines, he will isolate at the White House and will continue to
carry out all of his duties fully during that time. He has been in contact with members of
the White House staff by phone this morning, and will participate in his planned meetings
at the White House this morning via phone and Zoom from the residence.
Consistent with White House protocol for positive COVID cases, which goes above and
beyond CDC guidance, he will continue to work in isolation until he tests negative. Once he
tests negative, he will return to in-person work.
Out of an abundance of transparency, the White House will provide a daily update on the
President’s status as he continues to carry out the full duties of the office while in isolation
This is a developing story.
