Bidens spend weekend at home near Greenville, travel to Philly food bank


President Joe Biden flew back to his home near Greenville Friday night.

VIP airspace restrictions remain in place until Monday, Martin Luther King Day.

Biden’s trips to Delaware rarely feature public events and typically include attending mass at St. Joseph on the Brandywine and spending time with family members.


No public events were on the White House Schedule.

However, Biden and First Lady Jill Biden did travel to a Philadelphia food bank to pack produce as part of the Martin Luther King Day of Service.

Biden’s trips provide a modest boost to the Wilmington economy with traveling staff, and the media pool staying at hotels on the city’s riverfront.

Biden returns to a state in the grips of a surge of Covid-19 Omicron cases, with hospitals at or above full occupancy and the governor mandating mask-wearing in most public places.

The President suffered a setback in an effort to require companies with 100 or more workers to be vaccinated. A Supreme Court, dominated by conservative justices, ruled the move amounted to governmental overreach.

However, the high court narrowly approved vaccination orders for health care organizations that receive federal funds. Companies are still free to require employees to get vaccinated.
