The White House said President Joe Biden will continue to work from the White House residence after he tested positive for the Covid-19 virus again on Friday.
In a note released by the White House press office, the president’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, said Mr Biden “remains well” despite continuing to show rebound positivity after his Baxlovid treatment after he initially tested positive for the coronavirus last month.
“His cough is almost completely gone. His temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiration rate and oxygen saturation remain completely normal,” said Dr. O’Connor, who added that Mr. Biden would continue with the “strict isolation measures” implemented after he first tested positive for Covid-19.
The White House has not specified the exact circumstances under which Biden will end his isolation in the absence of a negative test, but public events are tentatively scheduled to resume next week, beginning with a visit to Kentucky to visit families affected by recent floods. He will also sign the PACT Honor Act, which expands benefits for veterans exposed to toxic substances, at Tuesday’s Rose Garden gala.
