President Joe Biden tested negative for Covid-19 but will proceed to isolate, in response to the White House.

Biden “continues to feel thoroughly,” White House physician Kevin O’Connor said in a memorandum on Saturday. Despite his negative antigen test, “in an abundance of caution, the president will proceed his strict isolation measures pending a second negative test,” O’Connor said.

Biden, who’s fully vaccinated and received two booster shots, first tested positive for Covid on July 21 after which tested positive for the second time in a “rebound” case one week ago.

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