In a Facebook post Monday, the mayor said, “Hardest part about this is how to start the post. I have been diagnosed with COVID. I was tested on Saturday night and I am in quarantine. I am one of the fortunate ones in that I have minor symptoms except for a case of pneumonia being treated with medication. I can/will be conducting business and meetings via internet and return to work on the 19th.
