Former President Barack Obama announced the news via Twitter.
Obama said his wife, Michelle, has not tested positive.
I just tested positive for COVID. I’ve had a scratchy throat for a couple days, but am feeling fine otherwise. Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative.— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) March 13, 2022
It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.
He urged people to keep up with their vaccines even as cases wane.
COVID cases in the US peaked this winter and have since dropped sharply. In the past two weeks, reported cases have fallen nearly 48%. Federal officials eased guidelines on masking and most states dropped mask mandates shortly after.
