Washington, DC — First Lady Jill Biden has tested positive for COVID. A statement from her communications director said a PCR test revealed a positive result after she had cold-like symptoms.
She’s double vaccinated and has received two boosters shots. Just like her husband, the First Lady is taking Paxlovid to treat her symptoms.
Dr. Biden’s positive PCR test came despite a negative antigen test. Her symptoms are described as “mild.” She’s in South Carolina and won’t leave until she tests negative twice.
President Joe Biden tested negative for the virus after recently recovering from it. He’s going to return to Washington to sign the Inflation Reduction Act today. His administration says he will wear a mask indoors and around others for ten days because he’s a close contact with his wife.
