Jill Biden Tests Negative for the Coronavirus


LEWES, Del. — Jill Biden, the primary lady, will leave isolation after testing negative for the coronavirus on Sunday, nearly every week after she tested positive while on vacation in South Carolina.

Dr. Biden had been isolating in a personal residence there, but will join President Biden in Delaware on Sunday, in accordance with a press release from Elizabeth Alexander, her communications director.

“After isolating for five days and receiving negative results from two consecutive Covid-19 tests, the primary lady will depart South Carolina later today for Delaware,” the statement said.

Dr. Biden had been together with her family on Kiawah Island in South Carolina when she first tested positive for the virus. She stayed behind while Mr. Biden continued on to Delaware, their home state, where he spent several days on the family’s home in Wilmington before arriving in Rehoboth Beach on Saturday evening.

The positive test threatened to disrupt much of the primary family’s vacation just weeks after Mr. Biden was forced to delay a weekend trip to Delaware when he initially tested positive for the virus last month after which developed a so-called rebound case greater than every week later. He emerged from isolation two weeks ago.

Dr. Biden, who was up up to now on vaccines and has received two booster shots, only experienced mild symptoms, in accordance with her office. She had also been prescribed the antiviral pill Paxlovid, a treatment that reduces the consequences of a coronavirus infection.
