On Sunday, Joe Biden was allowed to leave the White House for the first time since July 20, when he tested negative for Covid for the second day in a row.
In the wake of his July 30 return to seclusion due to “rebound” positives from an earlier bout with the illness, Biden, 79, had tested positive for Covid.
