Physician to the President, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, sent a letter Saturday letting the media know President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19 once again.

“As described last week, acknowledging the potential for so-called ‘rebound’ COVID positivity observed in a small percentage of patients treated with PAXLOVID, the President increased his testing cadence, both to protect people around him and to assure early detection of any return of viral replication,” O’Connor wrote.

Biden tested negative Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, Thursday morning and Friday morning. But on Saturday morning he tested positive.

“This in fact represents ‘rebound’ positivity,” O’Connor said. “The President has experienced no reemergence of symptoms, and continues to feel quite well.”

Treatment will not be reinitiated, but Biden will continue “close observation.”

O’Connor said Biden will resume “strict isolation procedures.”
