Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson trapped in Spain with positive COVID results

Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson’s vacation to Spain just got extended a few days due to a positive COVID-19 test.

Wilson is isolating in Spain, where he was with his family on vacation. His family has since returned to the United States after testing negative, Wilson said on social media.

Wilson said that he is boosted and is experiencing light symptoms.

Wilson told ALXnow that he will be unable to return for the installation of the new City Council on Monday — which was moved to City Hall from Alexandria City High School as a COVID prevention measure — but that he will be participating in the ceremony virtually.

Wilson is the second member of Council to contract COVID-19, after City Councilman Mo Seifeldein announced testing positive on Dec. 22.
