“After testing negative on Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, Thursday morning and Friday morning, the President tested positive late Saturday morning, by antigen testing,” the doctor said in a letter released by the White House.

O’Connor said Biden is not experiencing symptoms, and feels well. The doctor said there’s no reason to reinitiate treatment with Paxlovid at this time, but the president will “reinitiate strict isolation procedures.”

Biden wrote on Twitter: “Folks, today I tested positive for COVID again. This happens with a small minority of folks. I’ve got no symptoms but I am going to isolate for the safety of everyone around me. I’m still at work, and will be back on the road soon.”
