(NewsNation) — First lady Jill Biden has tested negative for COVID-19 again and will leave isolation after her latest bout with the virus.

Jill Biden, like President Joe Biden, dealt with a frustrating so-called “rebound” case. She first tested positive Aug. 16, then negative Aug. 21, before testing positive again Wednesday.

A news release from the White House said she would head to the Washington, D.C., area Tuesday.
