Mayor Eric Adams tested positive for COVID-19 Sunday, and City Hall said he will cancel all public events for the week.
The announcement comes after hizzoner abruptly called off all in-person appearances scheduled for April 10, which also marked his 100th day in office.
“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,” said the mayor’s press secretary Fabien Levy, in a statement Sunday afternoon, April 10.
“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. He is also going to immediately begin taking the anti-viral medications offered for free to New York City residents and encourages all New Yorkers eligible for these medications to take them as well,” Levy added. “While he is isolating, he will continue to serve New Yorkers by working remotely.”
