“He is fully vaccinated and twice boosted and experiencing very mild symptoms,” press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement, adding that the president had begun taking Paxlovid antiviral medication.

Biden will isolate at the White House until he tests negative and continue to carry out all his duties “fully” online, the statement said.
