Palm Springs mayor tests positive for COVID-19
Palm Springs Mayor Lisa Middleton has tested positive for COVID-19, she announced Wednesday.
Middleton will spend a minimum of 10 days at home in isolation while she recovers from what she described as “mild” symptoms.
The mayor first exhibited symptoms Tuesday and notified those she came in contact with outside of her home, the city said.
“I am grateful for the advice of medical experts, and in particular the diligence of Riverside County Public Health officials,” Middleton said. “I feel extremely fortunate that my symptoms are mild.
“The health and safety of our residents and visitors are our number one priority in Palm Springs and I encourage everyone to get fully vaccinated, boosted and regularly tested,” she added.
“This is the best way we can take care of one another.”
