President Joe Biden is ending his isolation following two negative COVID tests. White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor said that Biden tested negative on Tuesday (July 26) evening and again on Wednesday morning.
O’Connor noted that Biden completed his five-day course of Paxlovid 36 hours ago.
“He remains fever-free, and he discontinued use of any acetaminophen (TYLENOL) for the past 36 hours,” O’Connor said. “His symptoms have been steadily improving and are almost completely resolved.”
“Given these reassuring factors, the president will discontinue his strict isolation measures,” O’Connor continued.
O’Connor added that Biden will continue to be “very specifically conscientious to protect any of the Executive Residence, White House, Secret Service, and other staff whose duties require any (albeit socially distanced) proximity to him.”
“Back to the Oval. Thanks to Doc for the good care, and to all of you for your support,” Biden tweeted along with a photo of his negative test.
