The White House will provide a daily update on the president's health, Jean-Pierre said.
CNN, citing White House Covid coordinator Ashish Jha, said Biden has a runny nose and fatigue but no fever
Biden's Republican predecessor, Donald Trump, contracted Covid-19 in late 2020 and was hospitalized for several days.
"We are in a very different place than the last time a POTUS got Covid," Ezekiel "Zeke" Emanuel, a physician and former member of Biden's Covid transition team, wrote on Twitter.
"Biden is fully vaxxed/boosted and reportedly on a therapeutic (Paxlovid) that significantly mitigates symptoms. If anything, this shows how contagious BA5 is. Feel better, @POTUS!"
