MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed says he’s quarantining after testing positive for the coronavirus and developing a mild case of COVID-19.
Reed sent a message on social media on Sunday saying he will be fine and encouraging others to get tested, vaccinated, and boosted. He announced the diagnosis a day earlier, saying he tested positive after returning home from a business trip despite being fully vaccinated.
Eric Mackey, Alabama’s state school superintendent, announced on Friday that he had tested positive for COVID-19. Mackey says he is vaccinated and had received a booster shot and was experiencing “cold-like symptoms.”
