Biden tests positive again in COVID-19 rebound case

President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 again on Monday but “continues to feel well,” his doctor said.

Biden was released from his first round of solitary confinement after testing negative for COVID-19 last Tuesday and Wednesday. However, he tested positive again on Saturday in what White House doctor Kevin O’Conner described as a “rebound” case seen in a small number of people taking the antiviral drug Paxlovid.

O’Conner said the president will continue strict isolation measures and continue to be mindful of White House staff, the Secret Service and anyone else in close proximity to him.

Biden “will continue to direct the affairs of the American people from the executive residence,” for the remainder of his time in seclusion, O’Conner said.

The president posted a video Saturday from a White House balcony with his dog, Commander. “I feel good, everything is fine, but Commander and I have a little work to do,” he said.

Biden is fully vaccinated and has two booster shots, all vaccinated with Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19.
