Mayor London Breed has tested positive for Covid, according to a statement from her office released Wednesday.
“Mayor Breed is feeling well, and she will be conducting meetings from home,” the statement reads.
The mayor is fully vaccinated and boosted, according to her office. She is isolating in accordance with local health protocols and will not be attending any upcoming public appearances, the press release states.
The mayor had made a number of public appearances in the past few days including at the Warriors victory parade on Monday and a Junteenth celebration in the Fillmore District on Saturday. On Tuesday, Breed conducted a photoshoot with a number of city department heads and commission members at City Hall.
After a surge of Covid infections hit San Francisco last month, the number of new cases in the city have started to plateau and then dip over the past week. While overall deaths in the city saw an uptick in May, they are down for the month of June and are at a fraction of the levels seen during the Omicron wave in January.
