Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has tested positive for COVID-19 and says she will be working from home during her isolation period after experiencing mild symptoms.

The mayor’s breakthrough case comes one day after she struck a deal with the Chicago Teachers’ Union (CTU), which kept schools closed for four days as they demanded better COVID-19 safety policies amid the Omicron surge.

In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, Lightfoot revealed she had tested positive and will be in quarantine until she tests negative.

‘I am experiencing cold-like symptoms but otherwise feel fine which I credit to being vaccinated and boosted,’ Lightfoot wrote on Twitter.

‘I will continue to work from home while following the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidelines for isolation.’
