First Lady Jill Biden tests positive for COVID-19

First lady Jill Biden is self-isolating after testing positive for COVID-19, her office announced Tuesday.

The first lady developed cold-like symptoms on Monday night and was negative on a rapid antigen test but positive on a PCR test.

She continues to have “mild” symptoms, her spokesperson said.

Biden, 71, has been double-vaccinated and double-boosted and will isolate at a private residence in South Carolina, where he was staying when he tested positive, until he tests negative twice.

He was prescribed Paxlovid and will be isolated for at least five days.

Biden contracted the virus just weeks after her husband contracted COVID-19. The president was in and out of isolation after a Paxlovid bounce.

The Bidens vacationed at Kiawah Island, a luxury beach resort near Charleston, for the past week.

The president tested negative for an antigen test Tuesday morning but will mask indoors and around other people for 10 days as a close contact, the White House said.
