DETROIT, Mich. (WLNS)—The Mayor of Detroit has contracted COVID-19, according to his personal social media.
Mayor Mike Duggan took to Facebook where he announced his positive COVID-19 test.
He told the community that after two years the virus caught up to him. Duggan wrote that he woke up with a bad cough, and took a COVID-19 take-home test that came back negative.
On Sunday morning, the cough persisted and he took another COVID-19 take-home test that came back positive.
He told his Facebook followers he was glad he took the booster shot because his symptoms are mild.
“I’ll be working full-time from home on zoom until the doctors clear me to return to in-person meetings. If you haven’t gotten your booster, I encourage you to do that. When you get that positive COVID result, it’s a great relief to know you’re likely protected from serious symptoms.”Mayor Mike Duggan, Detroit
