HAVERHILL — Mayor James Fiorentini went into isolation last week after testing positive for COVID-19.
Spokesman Shawn Regan said the mayor began showing symptoms last Monday night and tested positive Tuesday morning. He immediately isolated and would remain so for 10 days — or until sometime this week.
Regan said the mayor believes he was exposed to the virus two weeks ago.
Fiorentini was on the agenda for Tuesday night’s City Council.
“The mayor reached out to council President Melinda Barrett this morning to advise her of the situation,” he said.
