Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced Monday she has tested positive for coronavirus, according to a tweet.

“COVID-19 has literally hit home,” the mayor said. “I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive.”
Bottoms, 50, has gained national prominence for clashing with Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Trump ally, over the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and protests against police brutality and racial injustice.
Georgia reported 1,897 new coronavirus cases on Sunday.
