LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — After testing positive for COVID-19 last week, both Mayor Linda Gorton and her husband, Charlie, have tested negative for the virus.

“I believe being fully vaccinated and boosted helped keep our COVID-19 symptoms fairly minor,” Mayor Gorton said.

Mayor Gorton's office says she will continue to treat a minor cough and congestion. The couple plans to continue to follow CDC guidelines of wearing a mask and keeping social distance in public.

They are both fully vaccinated, plus their booster shot.
