Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Tuesday that she has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Democrat said she has "cold-like symptoms" but otherwise feels fine. She credited being vaccinated and receiving a booster shot.

 

"I will continue to work from home while following the CDC guidelines for isolation," Lightfoot said. "This is an urgent reminder for folks to get vaccinated and boosted as it's the only way to beat this pandemic."

Lightfoot, a former federal prosecutor, is the first Black woman to be elected Chicago's mayor.
