Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley's office announced late Wednesday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 after receiving a notification that he had been exposed to someone with the virus.

The result of the at-home test prompted him to cancel appearances and events scheduled for Thursday.

His office said he was isolating, monitoring for symptoms and will be regularly testing.

Crowley is vaccinated and has received a booster shot. He is not currently showing symptoms, according to a spokesman.

He, Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson and County Board Chairwoman Marcelia Nicholson got vaccinated against the virus publicly last year. All are in their 30s.

In a statement, Crowley urged residents to get vaccinated and boosted.

The COVID-19 vaccines are designed to guard against contracting the virus or limit the severity of the disease in those who do catch it.

Early this year, Johnson announced he had tested positive for the virus.
