ATLANTA - Atlanta's Mayor Andre Dickens admitted to testing positive for COVID-19 in a tweet posted Tuesday afternoon.
"Good morning Atlanta, and I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I wanted to come on here and let you know I just tested positive for COVID," the mayor said in a video associated with the tweet.
Mayor Dickens revealed his plan to work from home over the coming days while recovering.
"I am feeling fine. I have minor symptoms and I think that's because I am vaccinated, and I am boosted," he said.
Immediate comments poured in wishing him a speedy recovery.
This is Mayor Dickens' second time testing positive for COVID-19 after his first run-in with the virus in 2021 when he was Atlanta's mayor-elect.
