WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has announced that he and his wife Jill Biden have tested negative for the coronavirus.
His announcement comes after being tested for COVID-19 in the wake of President Donald Trump’s infection and is awaiting results.
"I’m happy to report that Jill and I have tested negative for COVID," Biden tweeted.

Biden was on the debate stage with Trump for more than 90 minutes earlier in the week.
It’s unclear if Biden will appear at his scheduled campaign events later in the day. The Democrat’s campaign is expected to announce the results of Biden’s test and his travel plans later Friday.
