Biden tests negative for COVID, continues isolation

President Joe Biden tested negative for COVID-19 on Saturday, a week after his “rebound” infection was detected.

The 79-year-old Biden will continue to isolate at the White House until a second negative test, his doctor said in his latest daily update.

Dr. Kevin O’Connor wrote that the president, “in an abundance of caution,” will continue with the “strict isolation measures” used over the past week. He wrote that the president “continues to feel very well.”

Biden tested positive three days after he ended isolation from his first bout with COVID.

The rebound case has kept the president in the White House, but he is slated to visit Kentucky on Monday

to view damage from catastrophic flooding. At least 37 people died in the floods that swept through the Appalachian mountain region after as much as 10 1/2 inches of rainfall in just two days.
