LA Weekly’s Isai Rocha wrote on President Joe Biden’s recent positive Covid test. The White House reports that the president is feeling very “mild” symptoms. While those symptoms were not specified, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the president is currently taking Paxlovid as treatment.
“Consistent with CDC guidelines, he will isolate at the White House and will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time,” Jean-Pierre said. “He has been in contact with members of the White House staff by phone this morning, and will participate in his planned meetings at the White House this morning via phone and Zoom from the residence.”
