(Reuters) – New York City Mayor Eric Adams tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday after waking up in the morning with a “raspy voice,” his only symptom, a spokesperson said.
Adams will cancel all his public events for the remainder of the week and immediately begin taking anti-viral medications, the spokesperson, Fabien Levy, said in a statement.
“While he is isolating, he will continue to serve New Yorkers by working remotely,” the statement said.
