White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed the development in a July 21 statement. She said the 79-year-old president is experiencing "very mild symptoms" and will isolate himself for the time being.
"[Biden] will continue to carry out all of his duties fully … and work in isolation until he tests negative. Once he tests negative, he will return to in-person work."
According to Jean-Pierre, Biden returned a negative COVID-19 test result on July 19, two days before he contracted the pathogen. Given his advanced age, the president falls under the at-risk group in terms of developing severe illness.
She continued that the former vice president under the Obama administration had "been in contact with members of the White House staff by phone," and will join planned meeting "via phone and Zoom." The White House will also provide daily updates about Biden's status, added Jean-Pierre.
"Per standard protocol for any positive case at the White House, the White House Medical Unit will inform all close contacts of the president – including any members of Congress and any members of the press who interacted with [him]."
Biden's positive COVID-19 result followed that of White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, who caught the virus in June.
A June 15 statement from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) confirmed Fauci's illness, stating that a rapid antigen test he took returned a positive result. Just like Biden, the 81-year-old Fauci had "mild symptoms" even though he was "fully vaccinated and "boosted twice."

The NIH statement added that the infectious disease expert had not been in close contact with Biden or other senior officials before testing positive.
Biden and Fauci are just two examples of prominent government officials who proved that the COVID-19 vaccines are ineffective in preventing infection. Despite receiving four vaccine doses, the two officials of advanced age still caught COVID-19.
Two members of the legislative branch, both part of the Democratic Party, also contracted SARS-CoV-2 following their vaccination.
Back in April, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi contracted COVID-19 after attending events where she was in close proximity to vaccinated colleagues. Her deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill confirmed the test result on social media.
"After testing negative this week, Speaker Pelosi received a positive test result for COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic. The speaker is fully vaccinated and boosted, [and] encourages everyone to get vaccinated, boosted and [tested] regularly," Hammill wrote on April 7.
Prior to this, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tested positive for COVID-19 in January. She was fully vaccinated and boosted, having received her booster dose during the 2021 fall season.
According to a statement from her office at the time, Ocasio-Cortez was "experiencing symptoms and recovering at home." The congresswoman also called on Americans to "get their boosters" and follow public health guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
