The White House announced First Lady Jill Biden tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday, Sept. 4. She is seen greeting residents in Live Oak, Florida on Sept. 2.
The Bidens were on vacation in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware when Jill began experiencing “mild” flu-like symptoms.
Jill, who is double-vaccinated and boosted, previously tested positive for COVID in August 2022 and again that same month after undergoing treatment with Paxlovid.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said President Biden tested negative for COVID on Monday evening.
He returned to the White House after giving a Labor Day speech in Philadelphia. Mrs. Biden is convalescing at their Delaware home.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Americans who are fully vaccinated are more likely to be infected with a new COVID variant than someone who is unvaccinated.
The CDC published a “Risk Assessment Summary for SARS CoV-2 Sublineage BA.2.86” last month that stated the new variant “may be more capable of causing infection in people who have previously had COVID-19 or who have received COVID-19 vaccines.”

Last week, Biden strongly recommended that everyone get the new COVID mRNA vaccine that will go to market this month.
Unlike previous mRNA vaccines and boosters that failed to prevent infections, Biden said this shot will definitely work.
The CDC added, “this updated vaccine will be effective at reducing severe disease and hospitalization.”
Alarmists say Labor Day weekend will be the last taste of freedom for most Americans. They claim lockdowns and mask mandates will go into effect later this month.
Very few masks were seen among revelers at a beach near Atlanta over the weekend. No one wore a face mask at a supermarket in Gwinnett County on Saturday, Sept. 2.
