Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan tests positive for COVID-19

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan has tested positive for COVID-19. He's experiencing mild symptoms.

Duggan said in a Facebook post that he took a COVID-19 test Sunday morning that read a positive result. 

"I'm really glad I got the booster shot. The symptoms I have are mild - much like an average cold. Fortunately, my wife Sonia has tested negative," he said.

Duggan said he originally woke up with a cough and took an at-home Covid test on Saturday. The result came back negative - but he chose to stay home.

The cough persisted Sunday morning, prompting him to take another test.

It's the first time Duggan has been confirmed positive with the virus. 

COVID-19 cases have trended down in recent months following the country's surge with the omicron variant. 

The state reported another 1,661 cases over a two-day period Friday.
