Mike Duggan, who has been at the forefront in the battle against Covid in Detroit, has the virus.

"After two years, Covid finally caught up with me," the 63-year-old mayor says in a media release Sunday. "Saturday morning, I woke up with a cough, so I took a home Covid test. The result was negative, but I chose to stay home for the day.  Sunday morning, the cough persisted, so I took another Covid test. This one came back positive."

Duggan goes on to say he's glad he's vaccinated and boosted, and that the "symptoms I have are mild -- much like an average cold. Fortunately, my wife Sonia has tested negative."

He'll be working from home on Zoom until the doctors OK in-person, the mayor adds.
