Despite wearing a face mask, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced she has tested positive for COVID-19.

The mayor is pictured comforting Tomika Miller, the wife of Rayshard Brooks who was killed by police last month.

Bottoms tweeted her positive test result on Monday evening. "COVID-19 has literally hit home. I have had NO symptoms and have tested positive."

She told reporters she didn't know how she contracted the virus. Mayor Bottoms has repeatedly urged Atlantans to wear face masks in public. She diligently wears a face mask and maintains social distancing.

It isn't clear if Mayor Bottoms will self-quarantine for 14 days.

She is among the 99 percentile of people with COVID-19 who show no symptoms or mild symptoms.

COVID-19 cases are up 134% nationwide but fatalities are down 34%.
