Biden’s COVID symptoms ‘almost completely cleared’

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 symptoms are “almost completely resolved,” according to a new note from his doctor released Monday.

Although he still has some nasal congestion and a hoarse voice, his vital signs remain “absolutely normal,” Dr. Kevin O’Connor wrote.

Biden is taking Paxlovid, an antiviral drug that helps reduce the chance of severe illness from COVID-19, and plans to continue self-isolating at the White House residence.

“He continues to be extremely conscientious in protecting everyone from the executive residence, the White House, the Secret Service and other officials whose duties require any (however socially distanced) proximity to him,” O’Connor wrote.

On Monday afternoon, Biden is scheduled to make virtual remarks at the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives conference in Orlando, Florida. He is also expected to participate in a virtual meeting with business executives and labor leaders to discuss the Chips Act, a proposal to strengthen local manufacturing.

Biden has not held public events since Friday, when he held another virtual meeting with economic advisers.
