President Trump meets "CDC criteria for the safe discontinuation of isolation" and "is no longer considered a transmission risk to others," White House physician Sean Conley said in a memorandum published Saturday.

Of note: The memo does not mention when Trump's last negative coronavirus test was nor whether he's continuing to be treated for COVID-19, but Conley stated that the president has been "fever-free for well over 24 hours and all symptoms improved."

  • Conley stated that "there is no longer evidence of actively replicating virus" and he will "continue to monitor" the president clinically as he returns to an active schedule.

The big picture: Conley announced early on Oct. 2 that Trump had tested positive for COVID-19, along with first lady Melania Trump. White House officials have continually declined to say when the president last tested negative.

  • Trump was admitted to Walter Reed Medical Center later on Oct. 2. Conley said last week that the president received oxygen after his oxygen saturation level dropped below 94% last week.
  • The president was discharged from the hospital last Monday, but it was announced he would continue treatment at the White House.
  • Trump told Fox News Friday he had been off coronavirus medication for at least eight hours. He held his first rally in nine days on the South Lawn of the White House Saturday. It was attended by 300 to 400 people.

Polish President Andrzej Duda has tested positive for the coronavirus, a spokesperson announced on Saturday.

The big picture: Duda is reportedly feeling well and in isolation. His positive test comes amid a massive uptick in COVID-19 throughout the country and elsewhere across Europe.

  • Poland had previously warded off the virus with relative success, but is now facing a massive influx of cases that threatens to overwhelm its medical system.
  • The nation on Saturday tracked "13,628 new cases and 179 new deaths — a record number of deaths in one day since the start of pandemic," AP reports.

Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, tested positive for the coronavirus Saturday and is quarantining, according to a White House statement.

Why it matters: Short is Pence's closest aide, and was one of the most powerful forces on the White House coronavirus task force. Pence and second lady Karen Pence tested negative for the virus on Sunday morning, according to the vice president's office.
