HONOLULU — Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi tested positive Wednesday for COVID-19, his office said.
“He is currently isolating and resting at home and is in good spirits despite experiencing mild symptoms related to the infection,” his office said in a release.
Blangiardi is fully vaccinated and boosted, his office said. The 75-year-old mayor was scheduled to get his second booster shot later this week, said spokesperson Ian Scheuring.
This is Blangiardi’s first time contracting COVID-19, Scheuring said.
The office is notifying those who had close contact with the mayor in recent days.
The mayor is working remotely as needed and is expected to remain out of the office until sometime next week, his office said.
