After isolating for several days, Biden tested negative on July 26 en Julie 27, when he gave a speech in the Rose Garden, telling Americans they canlive without fearof the virus if they get booster shots, test themselves for the virus if they become sick and seek out treatments.

But Biden caught a rebound case of COVID-19 on July 30, forcing him to isolate again. He occasionally gave speeches from a White House balcony, such as when he marked the killing of an al-Qaida leader or a strong jobs report. He continued to test positive until Saturday, when he received his first negative result.

While the president was isolating in the White House residence, the first lady remained in Delaware.

The Bidens are scheduled to visit Kentucky on Monday to view flood damage and meet with families.
