NYC Mayor Eric Adams tests positive for COVID-19

New York City Mayor Eric Adams tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, his office said.

“This morning Mayor Adams woke up with a hoarse voice and, as a precaution, did a PCR test, which is now positive,” spokesman Fabien Levy said said in a statement on Twitter on Sunday afternoon. “At this point the mayor has no other symptoms but he is already isolating and will be canceling all public events for the rest of the week.”

Adams, who is vaccinated against the coronavirus, will work remotely during his isolation, the statement said.

He will also “immediately” start taking antiviral medications that are “offered to NYC residents free of charge, and encourages all New Yorkers who are eligible to take these medications as well,” Levy said.

Earlier Sunday, Adams’ public schedule was updated to reflect a cancellation of several in-person public appearances.

Then Levi tweeted that the mayor had done a quick test and it was negative.

“.@NYCMayor did a rapid #COVID test this morning which was negative but as a precaution he also did a PCR test and is awaiting the results,” he said.
