President Joe Biden has tested negative for Covid-19 but will continue to self-isolate, according to the White House.

Biden “continues to feel very well,” White House physician Kevin O’Connor said in a memorandum on Saturday. Despite his negative antigen test, “with great caution, the president will continue his strict isolation measures pending a second negative test,” O’Connor said.

Biden, who is fully vaccinated and has received two boosters, first tested positive for Covid on July 21 and then tested positive for the second time in a “rebound” case a week ago.

O’Connor previously warned of the potential for a rebound in positive test results, a phenomenon among a small percentage of patients who, like Biden, used the antiviral drug Paxlovid as part of their treatment.
