Mayor Sue Zwahlen today announced she has tested positive for COVID-19.
“A few days ago, I noticed mild symptoms that could be COVID-19 related. I purchased a home testing kit and the results came back positive. I am quarantining myself and following recommended protocols.”
Mayor Zwahlen indicated she had informed her City Council colleagues and staff that she would conduct city business virtually until symptoms disappeared and the quarantine period concluded.
“I am grateful that I was vaccinated before I caught this,” said Zwahlen. “The medical evidence, along with the record of experience we have with COVID-19, demonstrate that infections are less threatening once an individual is vaccinated. I urge all Modestans to get vaccinated if they have not yet done so and to be mindful of state and federal recommendations regarding masking and social distancing.”
