LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer announced on Sunday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
In a tweet that contained a statement from Mayor Fischer's Press Office, it was stated that he tested positive while participating in an educational program for U.S. mayors abroad in Israel.
"Israel requires a minimum five-day quarantine and a negative COVID-19 test before departure. We will keep the public updated on his return, as the mayor works remotely this coming week," the statement said.
As stated above, due to his positive test result, Mayor Fischer will miss a few events and meetings back home, including the beginning of Give A Day events.
Mayor Fischer currently has light, cold-like symptoms and attributes getting his COVID-19 vaccines and booster shot to not being extremely ill.
