    Biden tests positive for covid, White House says

    WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden tested positive for covid on Thursday morning and is experiencing "very mild symptoms," White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement.

    Jean-Pierre said Biden has begun taking Paxlovid and will isolate at the White House consistent with CDC guidelines.

    Biden "will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time," she said. "He has been in contact with members of the White House staff by phone this morning, and will participate in his planned meetings at the White House this morning via phone and Zoom from the residence."
