US President Biden leaves the White House for the first time since receiving COVID – National

President Joe Biden ended his recent COVID-19 isolation and on Sunday left the White House for the first time since being infected with the coronavirus last month and made his way to a reunion with First Lady Jill Biden in her home state of Delaware.

The president had tested negative on Saturday, clearing the way to emerge from an isolation that has lasted longer than expected due to a rebound case of the virus. The White House doctor, Dr. Kevin O’Connor said in his last update that Biden would continue his “strict isolation measures” “with great caution” pending a second negative test. The White House didn’t say Sunday if the president had a second negative test and hadn’t provided a fresh report from O’Connor since noon Saturday.

“I’m feeling great,” Biden said before boarding Marine One in front of the White House.

The Bidens are expected to spend the day at Rehoboth Beach, a popular vacation spot.

Biden originally tested positive on July 21 and began taking the antiviral drug Paxlovid, which is said to reduce the chance of serious illness from the virus. According to his doctor, Biden’s vital signs remained normal throughout his infection, but his symptoms included a runny nose, cough, sore throat and body aches.

After several days of isolation, Biden tested negative on July 26-27 while delivering a speech in the Rose Garden, telling Americans they could live “without fear” of the virus if they get booster shots and test themselves for the virus when you become ill and seek treatments.
