South Carolina– First Lady Jill Biden has tested negative for COVID-19 and will leave South Carolina, where she has been isolating since vacationing with President Joe Biden, and return to his Delaware beach home, her office said Sunday.
The White House announced Tuesday that the 71-year-old first lady, who like her husband has been vaccinated twice and has been boosted twice with Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, has tested positive for the coronavirus. She had the first symptoms on Monday.
The 79-year-old president recovered from a rebound case of the virus on Aug. 7.
Jill Biden was prescribed the antiviral drug Paxlovid and isolated for five days at the Kiawah Island vacation home before receiving negative results from two consecutive COVID-19 tests, spokeswoman Elizabeth Alexander said.
Jill Biden planned to travel to Delaware later on Sunday.
