The first lady of the United States, Jill Biden, 72, tested positive for Covid-19 this Monday (4), the White House announced.
“Tonight, the First Lady tested positive for Covid-19. She is currently experiencing only mild symptoms. She will remain at home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware,” the first lady’s spokeswoman, Elizabeth Alexander, said in a statement.
President Joe Biden tested negative, according to the White House.
A government official told the CNN last month that there were no changes to White House protocols, although some experts warned that the increase in hospitalizations could mean that some high-risk individuals may consider wearing a mask.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters in July in the White House briefing room that anyone meeting the president is still tested for Covid-19 before the meeting, after members of the delegation of Israeli President Isaac Herzog tested positive ahead of a bilateral meeting.
“We have test protocols whenever someone meets with the president,” Jean-Pierre said at the time. “So I can tell you that anyone who meets the president actually gets tested. I make. We all do.”
