WASHINGTON — President Trump is back working in the Oval Office just days after being released from hospital with COVID-19, a White House spokesman confirmed.
The commander-in-chief has been isolating in the White House residence after contracting the deadly virus but was in his office on Wednesday afternoon where he is being briefed on coronavirus negotiations and Hurricane Delta, Brian Morgenstern told reporters.
Photos also emerged on Twitter of a Marine guard standing outside the West Wing doors, as is customary whenever the president is working there.
Trump, 74, was released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday and has been finishing his coronavirus treatment at home.
Dr. Sean Conley, the physician to the president, has been providing daily updates on Trump’s condition and earlier Wednesday said Trump was symptom-free and had coronavirus antibodies.
It’s unclear if the president is still contagious after he and the first lady were diagnosed with COVID-19 on Friday.
Staffers in close contact with the commander-in-chief have been instructed to wear full PPE when within six feet of Trump, including disposable gowns and clear eye shields.
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted that he is “feeling good” and was looking forward to debating Democratic nominee Joe Biden in Miami on Oct. 15.
