By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - UPDATE: Paducah's Mayor Elect George Bray has confirmed that his COVID-19 test has come back positive.

"I did in fact test positive today for COVID but still have very few symptoms. I'm taking it one day at a time. Will be out of quarantine next week and will get to work planning for our transition to the new commission in January. Thanks again everyone. Wear your mask. Socially distance. If you can't do it for yourself, do it for others." He said.


Paducah Mayor-elect George Bray has been tested for COVID-19 after several members of his family tested positive.

In a Tuesday Facebook post, Bray said that he is awaiting test results after his wife, sister, and other family members tested positive for the virus. He also mentions that two of the incoming commissioners have also tested positive.

In the post Bray says the virus is entering a critical stage and encourages everyone to wear a mask and stay socially distanced.

He said, "If you are not concerned about your own health, you must still show respect and concern for those you could infect. Individuals who through your contact could become sick and die."
