Mayor Adams tested positive for COVID on Sunday, his office announced.

“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,” the mayor’s office said in a statement.

Adams went into isolation, canceled his public events for the rest of the week and planned to begin taking antiviral medication, his office stated. He had no symptoms other than a raspy voice, it added.

“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,” the statement read.

“While he is isolating, he will continue to serve New Yorkers by working remotely.”

This is a developing story.
