Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin tests positive for COVID-19 – NBC Connecticut

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin announced he tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.

He said he started to feel a little congested, so he took a home test.

The mayor said he had a stuffy nose and a mild cough, but generally felt fine.

It comes as the state’s positivity rate rose to more than 9% on Friday. The rate Thursday was 8.92%, according to state officials.

There are currently 212 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in the state.

Bronin reminds everyone that test kits are available for free at public libraries across the city. All people have to do is show up at a Hartford public library and get the tests. Residents can get two kits each containing two tests.
