First Lady Jill Biden Has Tested Positive For COVID-19

First lady Jill Biden tested positive for COVID-19 and was experiencing “mild symptoms,” the White House announced Tuesday.

She had been vacationing with President Joe Biden in South Carolina when she began experiencing symptoms on Monday.

She has been prescribed the antiviral drug Paxlovid and will isolate at the vacation home for at least five day. This is coming a month after President Joe Biden tested positive for the virus.

At the time, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that President Biden was experiencing “mild symptoms” and has begun taking Paxlovid, an antiviral drug designed to reduce the severity of the disease.

She said President Biden “will isolate at the White House and will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time.”

She continued, “He has been in contact with members of the White House staff by phone this morning, and will participate in his planned meetings at the White House this morning via phone and Zoom from the residence.”

President Biden, 79, is fully vaccinated, after getting two doses of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine shortly before taking office, a first booster shot in September and an additional dose March 30.
