Biden leaves for his beach house after negative COVID test

President Joe Biden tested negative for COVID-19, immediately leaving for his beach house in Delaware.

The departure came as senators took on a vote-a-rama over the weekend that ended with Democrats passing the Inflation Reduction Act which approved hundreds of billions in new spending.

The background

The quarantine break came after over two months in isolation that began on July 21. He faced minor symptoms despite being vaccinated and receiving two booster shots. Biden has also worn masks and all staff working with him have been vaccinated and tested.

“After his first six days of coronavirus isolation, while fighting symptoms of the virus, the president again tested positive on Saturday, July 30,” Breitbart News reported.

“His physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor blamed ‘rebound’ coronavirus, a symptom of his use of the antiviral drug Paxlovid to fight the virus,” it added.

The latest

“He will safety return to public engagement and presidential travel,” Dr. Kevin O’Connor wrote, according to the Associated Press on Sunday.

“The Bidens were expected to spend the day in Rehoboth Beach, a popular vacation destination,” the report added.

After a brief visit to Delaware, the president is expected to travel to Kentucky to view flood damage and meet with families impacted by the recent storms in the area. More than 30 people died, with Biden authorizing federal funding to assist with recovery efforts.

Biden’s COVID-19 case remarkably ended with one of his longest periods as president not leaving Washington as Biden ended his official isolation with more isolation in Delaware.
