Later, in an interview with CNN, she said that she received the news that both she and her husband were positive just before 6 p.m. ET on Monday. She said they decided to get tested because her husband had been sleeping more than normal since last Thursday.

"I'm still in a state of shock because I don't have any idea how we were exposed," she said, noting that she initially thought her husband's symptoms, and her own of a mild headache and dry cough, were due to allergies.”

The mayor is now is reportedly in the running to become the running mate to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
