Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, were both tested for the coronavirus Friday in the wake of President Donald Trump’s infection.
Both the former vice president and former second lady tested negative for the virus, according to a statement from Dr. Kevin O'Connor, the Bidens' personal care physician.
"Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden underwent PCR testing for COVID-19 today and COVID-19 was not detected," O'Connor said.
“I’m happy to report that Jill and I have tested negative for COVID. Thank you to everyone for your messages of concern," Biden tweeted. "I hope this serves as a reminder: wear a mask, keep social distance, and wash your hands.”
Biden was on the debate stage with Trump for more than 90 minutes earlier in the week.
It’s unclear if Biden will appear at his scheduled campaign events later in the day. The Democrat’s campaign is expected to announce the results of Biden’s test and his travel plans later Friday.
