Jill Biden, who is 71 years old and has had all four recommended doses of vaccination, double-vaccinated and twice boosted, tested positive for Covid 19, her office announced on Tuesday.
The diagnosis was made after her husband, former Vice President Joe Biden, recently returned positive test results for COVID-19 on two separate occasions after experiencing a rebound following taking Paxlovid pills.
“The First Lady is double-vaccinated, twice boosted, and only experiencing mild symptoms,” her communications director, Elizabeth Alexander, said in a statement. “She has been prescribed a course of Paxlovid and, following CDC guidance, will isolate from others for at least five days.”
