WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19, underscoring the extent to which the virus has infiltrated American society.

The White House said Thursday the 79-year-old Biden is experiencing “very mild symptoms,” including a stuffy nose fatigue and cough. He has begun taking Paxlovid, an antiviral drug designed to reduce the severity of the disease. Biden is fully vaccinated and has received two boosters. When a fully vaccinated person experiences infection, the chance of severe illness or death is low. Biden will isolate at the White House but carry out his duties via phone and Zoom, the White House said.

Biden canceled a planned visit to Pennsylvania on Thursday.
