President Joe Biden tested negative for Covid on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, his personal physician announced Wednesday, bringing to an apparent end the president’s brush with the virus.

Biden, who first tested positive for Covid late last week, will make his first public appearance since his diagnosis later Wednesday morning when he delivers remarks from the White House’s Rose Garden.

Wary of the potential for a “rebound” infection suffered by some patients who, like the president, were treated with the antiviral Paxlovid, Kevin O’Connor said Biden would increase his testing cadence in the coming days. He will also continue to wear a mask for 10 days whenever he is around other people.
