WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 again Saturday, slightly more than three days after he was cleared to exit coronavirus isolation, the White House said, in a rare case of "rebound" following treatment with an anti-viral drug.White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor said in a letter that Biden "has experienced no reemergence of symptoms, and continues to feel quite well." O’Connor said "there is no reason to reinitiate treatment at this time."In accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, Biden will reenter isolation for at least five days.
He will isolate at the White House until he tests negative.
