RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Days after announcing he would isolate after a member of his campaign team tested positive for COVID-19, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney has revealed his status.

In a Twitter post, Saturday, Nov. 11, Stoney said: “Just got my results back – I’ve tested negative for coronavirus, but I’ll continue to quarantine as recommended by the experts. This is a reminder to everyone – if you’re exposed, isolate, and once you isolate, get tested!”
