Jill Biden Tests Positive For COVID Again

 First Lady Jill Biden has again been diagnosed with COVID, her office announced on Monday.

“This evening, the First Lady tested positive for COVID-19. She is currently experiencing only mild symptoms,” said her communications director Elizabeth Alexander.

In a separate statement, the White House said President Joe Biden tested negative for COVID after his wife’s positive test.

The first lady will remain at their home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, according to her representative.

Jill Biden, 72, and President Biden, 80, both of whom received COVID vaccines and booster shots, have been doing some traveling together in recent days.

They both tested positive for COVID last year and each underwent “rebound” cases in the weeks that followed.

COVID cases in the United States are reportedly on the rise again as new variants have started to establish themselves.

President Biden claimed to reporters on Sunday that he was not on “vacation” despite visiting his beach house in Rehoboth over the weekend.

He departed Delaware on Monday morning and travelled to Philadelphia to celebrate Labor Day. The president later traveled back to Delaware before returning to the White House later in the day.
