Atlanta Mayor Says She Has Tested Positive for COVID-19

ATLANTA — Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms says she has tested positive for COVID-19.

She tweeted Monday that she had no symptoms but still tested positive. Bottoms has risen to prominence during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first-term mayor drew attention for her earlier criticism of Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on his slowness to order Georgians to shelter in place and his quickness to lift that order.

Bottoms was an early and vocal supporter of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, speaking on his behalf in Iowa before that state’s caucus. The former vice president has been considering Bottoms as his possible running mate.

Bottoms has also supported protests against police brutality and racial injustice that have been widespread in Atlanta.
