Sunday morning he said he still had the cough, so he took another at-home test and it came back positive.

The mayor said his symptoms are mild, and encouraged others to get vaccinated.

“I’m really glad I got the booster shot,” said Duggan. “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.”
