President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday morning, according to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
Biden, 79, is fully vaccinated and double boosted. He is experiencing "experiencing very mild symptoms" and taking the COVID antiviral pill Paxlovid, according to a White House press release.
He will isolate at the White House where he will work remotely, Jean-Pierre stated.
"Out of an abundance of transparency, the White House will provide a daily update on the President’s status as he continues to carry out the full duties of the office while in isolation," she pledged.
