Oxford, Mississippi Mayor Robyn Tannehill revealed during a Special Session of the Board of Aldermen Wednesday, July 15, 2020, that she has tested positive for corona virus.
Mayor Tannehill attended the meeting from home via video teleconference.
Tannehill said she will be quarantining for the next 14 days as a result of the positive test. She added that she has exhibited no symptoms of the virus.
“My daughter got tested for COVID-19 because she had been around a friend who tested positive. She tested last Wednesday and we still have not received her results,” Tannehill said. “This morning, she and I both had the rapid test, and we both came back positive. I wasn’t going to get tested, but I was there with her and she tested positive, so I asked them to test me, too.”
