WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden again tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday and will cancel two planned trips but is experiencing no symptoms and feels “quite well.”

Biden had planned the Michigan trip to tout Thursday’s passage of legislation to boost the semiconductor chips industry, which the White House announced earlier Saturday.

Biden’s positive test is believed to be “rebound” positivity experienced by some COVID patients, according to White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor.

Biden tweeted about his positive case, saying it can happen to a “small minority of folks.”

O’Connor said Biden, who is 79, tested negative for the last four days, and there is no plan to reinitiate treatment given his lack of symptoms.

Biden previously described his experience with COVID as mild, saying he was able to continue working while in isolation and attributed his relative ease with the disease to vaccines and other treatments.
