First lady Jill Biden tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday evening after experiencing what her spokesperson said were mild symptoms.
President Biden – who is due to travel to India on Thursday for the G20 – has tested negative, the White House has announced. It will be tested regularly this week.
This is the second time Jill Biden, 72, has had COVID. Last August, she contracted the virus while vacationing with the president and his family on Kiawah Island, South Carolina. After treatment with Paxlovid, she later tested positive.
The president last tested positive for COVID in July 2022.
The Bidens spent time together over the weekend, traveling first to Live Oak, Fla., to attend hurricane recovery efforts, then to their vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Del.
The president is back at the White House after traveling to Philadelphia today to celebrate Labor Day, while the first lady stayed in Rehoboth Beach.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
