Has there been any announcement of whether the President or his wife are symptomatic? Fever, myalgia, etc? Or just CRISPR positive?
Since the Vice President has not been sworn in, one would have to assume the President still feels able to serve and that his medical advisors tend to agree he is not impaired.

Pence and his spouse were reported to test negative this morning.
We certainly are living in interesting times...
