Biden, still rebounding, remains COVID positive Sunday, extends isolation

2 min read

President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID again on Sunday—this after testing positive Saturday in what the White House called a “rebound” case of the virus.

The president will continue the isolation he resumed Saturday, one of his physicians, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, wrote in a letter released Sunday by the White House. He said the results of the test were unsurprising.

On Sunday Biden tweeted a video of Secretary of Veteran Affairs Denis McDonough delivering pizzas to supporters of burn pit legislation gathered at the Capitol on Saturday. Biden was scheduled to deliver the pizza himself but was prevented by his COVID rebound. Instead, he met with supporters via FaceTime as McDonough held the phone.

Biden—who initially tested positive July 21, after a week of traveling across the Middle East—tested negative for the virus on Tuesday night and again on Wednesday morning of this past week, when he ended his isolation.

He additionally tested negative Thursday and Friday mornings before testing positive again Saturday morning, according to a letter from presidential physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, obtained and posted to Twitter by a Reuters correspondent.

On Saturday the president said via Twitter that he would return to isolation despite the fact that he’s not experiencing new symptoms.

“Folks, today I tested positive for COVID again,” he wrote. “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.”
