Biden Takes Maskless Photo In West Wing After Testing Positive For COVID

President Joe Biden took a maskless photo in the White House Thursday, just hours after officials announced he has symptomatic COVID and would be isolating.

Biden posted a photo from his official Twitter account shortly after noon after he was forced to cancel an event in Scranton, Pennsylvania. In the photo, Biden is seated at a desk in the West Wing without a mask. The photo was taken only hours after White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed that Biden had contracted COVID, which would appear to mean Biden was flouting guidelines set down by his own CDC.

“Folks, I’m doing great. Thanks for your concern,” Biden said in the tweet. “Just called [Pennsylvania] Senator [Bob] Casey, Congressman [Matthew] Cartwright, and [Scranton] Mayor [Paige] Cognetti (and my Scranton cousins!) to send my regrets for missing our event today. Keeping busy!”
