Mayor Michael O’Connor tested positive for COVID-19 Wednesday morning and is currently self-isolating in his home in Frederick. He will work remotely until he is officially cleared to return to City Hall. He remains in good spirits but is experiencing mild symptoms that will keep him off today’s scheduled workshop.
Mayor O’Connor continues to follow the CDC guidance regarding testing in an effort to safeguard the health and well-being of his colleagues and all residents he encounters. He is working with contact tracers to notify colleagues and community members he came in contact with earlier this week.
“This serves as another reminder of the seriousness of this global pandemic and the ongoing challenges that remain,” Mayor O’Connor said. “Despite being vaccinated and boosted and our community being in a state of low transmission, breakthrough infections remain a real concern.”
The Mayor continues to support vaccination efforts throughout the City and urges everyone to take necessary steps to protect your health and wellbeing.
