The White House has taken extraordinary steps to protect the president in the past, although Mr. Biden has resumed a more normal presidential schedule in recent months.

On the “Today” show, Dr. Jha said the president was being closely monitored for signs that his symptoms could get worse, including the possibility of some effect on his lungs, which could be one of the more dangerous complications of a coronavirus infection because Covid is primarily a respiratory disease.

So far, said Dr. Jha, there were no such signs.

“His personal physician also consults with infectious disease experts across the country, all part of the plan of what we always intended to do if the president got infected,” said Dr. yah. “And so he gets check-ins very regularly and of course he meets people all day long, over the phone and via Zoom, so a lot of eyes are on him.”

dr. Jha also downplayed the risks that the president could develop so-called ‘long Covid’, with symptoms lasting for weeks, months or longer. He used a question about that opportunity to raise the importance of vaccination.

“If you think about, you know, the number of people who end up having significant long-term symptoms is very small and significantly reduced if you’re vaccinated and boosted, which is what this president has,” he said.

The first lady, Jill Biden, who was considered to be in close contact with the president, tested negative on Friday, her spokesman Michael LaRosa said. Vice President Kamala Harris was also considered to be in close contact with Mr. Biden as of Thursday, Kirsten Allen, her office spokeswoman, said Friday, adding that Ms. Harris tested negative Friday morning and experienced no symptoms.

Both the first lady and the vice president have received two boosters. The CDC defines close contact as someone who was within six feet of an infected person for a total of at least 15 minutes during a 24-hour period.
