Jersey City Mayor Fulop Tests Positive for COVID

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop has tested positive for COVID-19.  In a tweet earlier this morning, Fulop stated, “Yesterday, I tested positive for COVID + started isolation for 10 days per CDC.  I have no symptoms but getting tested was important before seeing family for holidays.”

The Mayor went on to add that he was thankful for the protection the vaccine and booster shots provide, “as it would be a different situation without them.”

The Mayor urges residents to stay mindful of safety precautions.  He continues to encourage residents to get vaccinated and receive the booster shot.
