The following is a statement from Fabien Levy, press secretary to New York City Mayor Eric Adams, on the mayor’s health status on April 20, 2022:
“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.
“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.
“While he is isolating, he will continue to serve New Yorkers by working remotely.”
