On his 100th day in office, Mayor Eric Adams tested positive for COVID-19, his press secretary Fabien Levy said in a statement on Sunday.
"This morning, Mayor Adams woke up with a raspy voice and, out of an abundance of caution, took a PCR test that has now come back positive," Levy said. "At this time, the mayor has no other symptoms, but he is already isolating and will be canceling all public events for the remainder of the week."
Adams is taking anti-viral medications available for free to all New York City residents, Levy said.
Hours after the announcement, Adams tweeted that he is thankful he is vaccinated and his symptoms are minimal. The mayor plans to continue working remotely.
