First lady Jill Biden tests positive for Covid-19

Welcome back.
First Lady Jill Biden has tested positive for COVID.
The White House says she’s
only experiencing minor symptoms and will stay at the family’s Delaware home while she recovers.
Meanwhile,
President Biden,
who tested negative before returning to the White House late yesterday,
will keep testing regularly and monitoring for symptoms.
Let’s go to the White House and
NBC’s Monica Alba now.
Monica,
it’s a busy week for the president.
He’s got a metal of
our ceremony today’s traveling to India and Vietnam later this week.
Is all that still on for now?
For the moment,
it is on.
But that’s the real question.
And the White House says that the
president will continue to test at what they say is a regular cadence.
Now we don’t know if that
means necessarily multiple times a day before these big events with a lot of people.
As you mentioned,
he’s going to be honoring an army captain later this afternoon at the White House.
And then he is
supposed to be departing for that very high stake summit in India on Thursday.
So we know the White
House will continue to let us know on how that’s going.
And the first lady’s office says that,
yes,
the first lady is experiencing some mild symptoms for now.
Remember last week was the official
back to school for the first lady who,
of course,
does teach community college here in the area.
And she also visited a bunch of different schools.
And then she traveled with President Biden
down to Florida on Saturday.
They spent the weekend,
the rest of it at Rehobev Beach.
And that is where
she is going to be isolating and quarantining over the next couple of days.
Last summer,
both of them
had COVID at different times.
They took tax.
Loved it.
They both had rebound cases.
But then we’re able
to recover.
So the White House says they’ll keep us posted on this.
But of course,
there’s a lot
hanging in the balance that could shift should the president potentially test positive here on it.
We wish the first lady a speedy recovery.
Monica,
all the thank you.
