Days after testing negative for COVID-19, Jill Biden received a positive result Wednesday on an antigen test. "This represents a 'rebound' positivity," a White House spokesperson said. Biden, 71, has no symptoms, the statement said, and plans to remain isolated at home in Delaware, USA Today reports.
