Biden, who first tested positive for COVID-19 nine days ago, “has experienced no reemergence of symptoms, and continues to feel quite well,” O’Connor said, adding, “This being the case, there is no reason to reinitiate treatment at this time, but we will obviously continue close observation. However, given his positive antigen test, he will reinitiate strict isolation procedures.”
He continued, “As I’ve staged previously, the President continues to be very specifically conscientious to protect any of the Executive Residence, White House, Secret Service and other staff whose duties require any (albeit socially distanced) proximity to him.”
On Wednesday, July 27, after testing negative for COVID-19, Biden stepped out to the White House Rose Garden to speak about his experience with the virus.
“My symptoms were mild, my recovery was quick and I’m feeling great,” he said. “When I got COVID, I worked from upstairs of the White House…[for] that five-day period. The difference is vaccinations, of course.”
