(AP) — The White House says President Joe Biden has tested negative for COVID-19. Vice President Kamala Harris also tested negative after close contact with a staffer who was diagnosed the next day with the coronavirus.

Biden was in close contact on Air Force One last Friday with a staff member who later tested positive and began showing symptoms. The White House says the 79-year-old president tested negative several times after the exposure, including on Wednesday.

The White House says Harris tested negative earlier Wednesday. After she was told about the staffer, she took a more sensitive COVID-19 test that produced a negative result.
